In 1850, Frederick Gunn and his wife Abigail began teaching a handful of students in their home. More than 165 years later, The Gunnery stands as a symbol to its founders’ values—intellectual strength, moral courage, physical rigor and character.
Thanks to the vision of Frederick and Abigail Gunn, as well as the strong commitment of alumni and friends over the years, The Gunnery endures as a noble institution of learning where integrity, respect and responsibility are the foundation of an excellent education.
