The Gunnery

22 Kirby Rd, Washington, CT 06793



The Gunnery was founded in 1850 by Frederick Gunn, a forward thinker who still inspires the traditions we keep. In addition to the habits and skills you will need in college, we teach our students to follow Mr. Gunn’s example: to cultivate wisdom, to be trailblazers, to act with conviction and to value character as highly as intellect and achievement. With an enrollment of 300, our intentionally small size will give you the opportunity to learn these lessons in ways that work for you. You will leave our campus prepared not only for a life of success, but also for a life of meaning and purpose. Our students learn to think fearlessly and act thoughtfully.

At Mr. Gunn’s school, we have a goal for all of our graduates. We hope that you will be recognized not just for your successes, but also for your character. As a student at The Gunnery, you’ll be asked to speak your mind with confidence and compassion. You’ll be asked to embrace all kinds of diversity. You’ll be asked to try, fail, and try again. And when you graduate, you’ll be in the company of good people, prepared to embark on a life well-lived.
