About Gardner Pilot Academy

Gardner Pilot Academy is a full-service community school that serves over 400 students in pre-kindergarten (K0) through grade 8 in the Allston neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts.

Located in the Allston neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts, Gardner Pilot Academy is a full-service community school that serves over 400 students in pre-kindergarten (K0) through grade 8. Our school provides outstanding education and support to students from 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. every day, with regular school hours between 8:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.

To achieve the school’s mission of academic excellence for all students, Gardner Pilot Academy (GPA) provides high-quality teaching, along with a range of social, emotional and enrichment programs.

GPA maintains strong relationships with dozens of community partners – including universities, physical and mental health providers, and non-profit enrichment, recreation, and arts organizations – that actively strengthen GPA’s ability to teach and enhance student learning.

As one of just 21 pilot schools, similar to charter schools but part of the Boston Public Schools, GPA is exempt from many district and union regulations. Pilot status gives the school autonomy to offer innovative curricula, assessment, interventions, and a school culture that supports high expectations and achievement.
