Junior Academy


Dear Junior Academy Families:

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! As the new Junior Academy Principal, I am thrilled to be a part of the Drew community, which exhibited such tenacity and resilience in the midst of unprecedented times. Despite the hardships and trials of the past few years, Drew teachers, students, and families continue to persevere.

We will continue our focus on STEAM. Through Project-Based Learning, students hone their scientific, technological, and artistic skills by not only exploring and discovering new concepts but applying those concepts to real-world scenarios. The “middle” of a student’s educational journey is an exciting one. Drew’s Junior Academy thrives in this unique space where students begin to connect more with their classmates as well as the larger world around them.

I look forward to a year that will most certainly be an amazing one! I’m excited to get to know the entire Junior Academy community as we work together to ensure EVERY Junior Academy student soars as true Drew eagles do.

Let’s make it an awesome year!

Cynthia A. Gunner

Junior Academy Principal
