Sustainability at The Gunnery: Through our environmental-based programs, we seek to educate our community to become more aware and concerned citizens.
Building on Mr. Gunn’s passion for the outdoors and environmental awareness, The Gunnery remains committed to sustainability on campus in order to preserve our natural resources. Through our environmental-based programs, we seek to educate our community to become more aware and concerned citizens. We endeavor to make the best institutional and personal environmental decisions on both a local and global scale.
Gunnery students have the opportunity to actively contribute through the school’s Green Club or apply to become Eco-Leaders on campus. Each group of students aids in the program’s initiatives, develops outreach events such as the Green Cup Challenge or Earth Day Clean-Up, and promotes environmental awareness on campus.
There are so many ways to get involved in Gunnery Sustainability! Please don’t hesitate to get in touch to join us in achieving our goals.
Founded in 1850 by abolitionist, educator, and outdoorsman Frederick Gunn, The Gunnery is a coeducational college preparatory boarding and day school for students in grades 9 through 12/post-graduate. Dedicated teacher-mentor-coaches challenge students to reach their full potential in a home-like setting where character and citizenship are valued as much as intellect and achievement. Individualized attention and high expectations help young learners develop not only the skills and confidence they will need in college, but also the moral compass and love of learning that will serve them well in life. The school attracts ambitious, academically curious students who will both shine as unique individuals and thrive as contributing members of a deeply connected community. By the time they graduate, Gunnery students have become well rounded, grounded young adults with a sharpened sense of who they are and who they want to become.
