Discover why GBA earned Distinction of Accreditation from AdvancED Accreditation Commission.

“The school is an amazing facility where all the students were respectful to the team members, teachers and other staff. Its strong drumming and volunteering programming and arts strengthen the academics. A majority of the school’s graduates will attend college, a few at Ivy League Schools. This is in contrast to students having a lack of career goals prior to entering the facility. Greenbrier Academy of Girls is truly a rich, learning community.”
