We are located at 733 Eighth Street NW and our staff will be teleworking. We will not be hosting any building tours from March 16 – March 31. Although this may disrupt some of our plans to host our families, we will continue the work of our mission.

Why Girls' Schools?

"Girls’ schools are leading the way in STEM education for women in the world. Graduates of girls’ schools are six times more likely to consider majoring in math, science, and technology and three times more likely to consider engineering compared to girls who attended coed schools."

- National Coalition of Girls’ Schools (NCGS)

Let’s Start Your Education!

Our program is designed with the particular needs of girls with readiness and interest as paramount; as a result, it will positively impact all girls. The combination of rigorous academics – with focuses in engineering and business – and supportive community are critical to outcomes for girls. Research suggests that all-girls education positively impacts students’ transitions to college and enhances self-esteem. Girls’ school graduates are also three times more likely to consider engineering careers and six times more likely to consider majoring in math, science and technology than peers from coed schools.
