Starting this summer, ‘The GAM’ has new features, more stories and a fresh, colorful look. Read “In their own Words,” featuring students’ hopes for Falmouth Academy’s new meeting hall and a Q&A with FA alumni Kurt Achin ‘87, who’s traveled the world as a CNN producer and bureau chief for Voice of America. See the view from “A Distant Shore,” a photo essay from Belize by Tasha Garland ‘16 and read our cover feature, “Why I Teach” by Olivann Hobbie, who retired in June.
We hope you enjoy the new format of our traditional magazine.
We have come to the end of the awesome 2014 Falmouth Academy Summer Programs. Adventure and creativity exploded from every inch of the campus—from a 50-foot inflatable whale in the gym to fencing in the library. So many exciting memories were created and we’d like to share some of them with you.

The foundation of the new meeting hall floor was poured this week. Students are looking forward to celebrating the life of Falmouth Academy at All-School Meeting in this new space. To read about the campaign to build the new meeting hall and renovate the performance space, visit here.
Falmouth Academy is proud to host the Cape Symphony’s new music ensemble—Nth Degree —in a year-long series of performances at our Highfield Drive campus. The chamber music group, comprised of the Symphony’s gifted principal musicians and extraordinary guest artists, will be led by Jae Cosmos Lee, the Symphony’s Concertmaster.
The ensemble’s first 4-part concert series, called “The Titans,” a Cape Symphony Presents Production, will be held Sat., Sept. 13 at 7:30. The series is planned as an intimate concert experience, with discussion of the selections by Mr. Lee during the concerts and a personal reception with the performers following each show.
This first series will focus on the music of Brahms, Mozart and Beethoven - the undisputable geniuses of classical music. The repertoire will be eclectic to showcase different works written for varying number of players and instrumentation.
Falmouth Academy has a rich history of hosting arts for the community, including the Falmouth Chorale, Cape Cod Theater Project and the popular Simon Sinfonietta. The Cape Symphony is a natural extension of this tradition.
