Our Unique Setting
Nestled on 10 acres of forests and wetlands, Gig Harbor Academy takes advantage of its natural surroundings each and every day. On any given day the grounds come alive with students exploring the wetlands; from preschoolers planting seeds in the greenhouse, fourth and fifth graders tending to their edible garden, to outdoor P.E. classes.
Certified by the Arbor Day Association, Gig Harbor Academy is one of 8 Nature Explore Outdoor Classrooms® in Washington State. The playground is designed for nature-based play and purposeful learning featuring: “Neverland”, where children build their gross motor skills by walking the tugboat tightrope and jumping from stump to stump; “Picasso Pit”, GHA’s outdoor art center; “Messy Room” mud kitchen, and areas for digging, pretend play and fort building,
