Kindergarten is an exciting year at Gig Harbor Academy. GHA Kindergarteners are encouraged to go deeper into their thinking and perception of the world around them, beyond academics. The program focuses on helping students further develop independence, self-confidence, and curiosity through a student-centered, inquiry-based approach. GHA immerses children in a safe, nurturing, loving and caring environment so that each student feels courageous enough to make mistakes and persevere all year long.
