History & Traditions

On December 6, 1759, a group of citizens, concerned about the education of their children, met with Daniel Mackinett at the Green Tree Inn on Germantown Road. At this meeting, The Germantown Union School (now known as Germantown Academy) was founded.

Hail Our Alma Mater...

A school 260 years old understandably enjoys quite a few traditions. Some traditions are as old as the 1700s, while others have been born in the last decade. All make Germantown Academy the amazing school that it is today.
