Why All Girls?

It will change your life.

All-girls schools are places where girls take center stage and are prepared for lives of commitment, confidence, contribution, and fulfillment.

All-girls schools are more relevant today than ever before. All-girls schools are impacting society’s lack of women going into STEM-related fields. All-girls schools prepare girls to become women who rise to the highest levels of leadership.

“Single-sex programs…create an institutional and classroom climate in which female students can express themselves freely and frequently, and develop higher order thinking skills.”Dr. Rosemary C.

Next to traditional coeducational environments, an all-girls environment provides opportunities to showcase their emerging talents.

In every class, in every club, on every team, the leader is a girl. When space is given, girls step up and lead. Girls who may never have thought they had it in them to be leaders find their voices.

Young women have the freedom to nurture their passions and chase their potential. With the encouragement of supportive faculty and peers, girls take chances and reach further in an all-girls environment.

Positive experiences together nurture relationships and form bonds. Sisterhood is fostered through shared experience. When given the opportunity, young women learn to trust, respect, and love one another – countering the ‘Mean Girl’ paradigm.

Women graduates of all-girls schools are educated to become future leaders of our country and our world. Changemakers. Peace purveyors. Mavens of social justice.

An all-girls education creates a foundation of achievement and love of discovery. Building upon their successes, young women grow in confidence. University professors can identify the all-girls' school graduate in a class by their secure sense of self.
