Gunston’s rigorous, diverse, and personalized academic curriculum is designed to prepare students to excel in college and beyond. We nurture the love of learning through an inquiry-based approach, innovative instruction, and advanced coursework, including 18 AP courses.
Gunston strongly believes that the athletic field is the place where important life lessons and leadership skills are developed, and where the values of teamwork, sportsmanship, and healthy competitiveness are nurtured. We value fair play as well as positive support for players, coaches, and teams.
With students at the center of every program, Gunston actively seeks to train young people to be good citizens and to be leaders in their society. Leadership is a skill that can be taught, and students at Gunston have the opportunity to work closely with adult mentors who will help them develop and direct personally meaningful activities both in and outside their school.
Our annual Chesapeake Bay Studies Week is one of the nation’s most innovative environmental education programs.
