2016 Conference on Coordinate Education

NCGS and the International Boys' Schools Coalition (IBSC) will present the second Conference on Coordinate Education to be held in Baltimore, MD, on October 20-21, 2016, at St. Paul's School for Girls and St. Paul's School.

This conference will explore the strategies, opportunities, and challenges of forming a coordinate education program between all-girls and all-boys schools. Whether your school currently has an established coordinate program or is considering one, we encourage you to attend this conference to learn more about best practices.

Registration is open to all members of a school community, including senior level administrators, classroom teachers, and school trustees. Past participants found the experience to be particularly valuable when they were able to attend as part of a team from their schools. We are happy to extend a discounted rate to schools that register three or more attendees.

NCGS is currently accepting proposals for its upcoming Educating Girls Symposium, a professional development opportunity for educators to come together and exchange best practices for teaching and working with girls.

Educating Girls Symposium
School Communities: The Power of Many Voices
February 22, 2017
The Nightingale-Bamford School
New York, NY
Presented in partnership with the New York State Association of Independent Schools (NYSAIS)

School Communities: The Power of Many Voices will be the theme of the day with discussions addressing:

1. How do the various “communities” in your school – students, teachers, administrators, admissions teams, advancement officers, parents, and more – collaborate to create a space where girls feel safe, valued, and appreciated?
2. How does your school resolve conflict when any one of these voices is perceived to overshadow others?
3. How are the mission, vision, and values of your school reflected in the development of your school community?

We invite you to submit a proposal to present on your expertise. Click here to learn more about the process and to submit a proposal.

Infographics on Benefits of Girls' Schools Available for NCGS Members

NCGS is offering its member schools impactful infographics and charts. These visual statistics will give prospective and current families and donors a quick snapshot of the unique benefits and outcomes of girls' schools.

The infographics cover aspects of girls' schools such as dedication to how girls learn, academic achievement, inspirational environment, building self-confidence, developing leadership skills, higher aspirations, and success in STEM.

Also available are charts from the research report "Steeped in Learning: The Student Experience at All-Girls Schools," which highlight statistics comparing students at all-girls schools with their female peers at coed independent and public schools.

Available exclusively to NCGS member schools, the infographics and charts can be used in a variety of ways:

1. Embed in school's website.
2. Share on social media.
3. Publish in alumnae magazine.
4. Enhance fundraising materials.

These graphic files can be easily downloaded from a private webpage upon request. Please contact Olivia Haas to receive the link.
