Greens Farms Academy (GFA) is a PreK-12 independent preparatory co-educational day school in the Greens Farms section of Westport, Connecticut, drawing 695 students from numerous towns of central southern Fairfield County. Greens Farms Academy is located on a campus near Long Island Sound, a salt marsh and an Audubon woodland. Some of the buildings that make up the school were previously part of a family estate belonging to the Vanderbilts. Since being converted to a school, multiple buildings have been added to the original estate, including a new section for the Upper and Middle schools.[1]

Greens Farms Academy was an all woman's preparatory school when it was first established in 1925. The school converted to a co-educational system in later years, but still keeps many of its traditions.
