About Gig Harbor Academy
Established in 1976 on ten acres of trees and wetlands, Gig Harbor Academy was originally founded as a one-room schoolhouse where children were taught in an environment that encouraged them to think freely for themselves and develop a love for learning.
Gig Harbor Academy has grown to be a four-building preschool through fifth grade school where independence and individuality is still taught in every classroom. Gig Harbor Academy’s campus features an outdoor classroom, fitness trail, athletic field, archeological dig site and 5 acres of certified wetlands with trails for research and enjoyment. A large tree-filled playground complete with a variety of play structures and equipment serve as the area for recess and outdoor play. All of these features help our students learn in a stimulating environment that challenges them mentally, creatively and physically.
GHA strives to instill academic excellence by challenging each student intellectually, creatively and physically in a respectful and caring environment.
