For those who were not able to join the summer sessions, NCGS and Online School for Girls (OSG) have added a fall session for the course Single-Gender Education: An Orientation for New Faculty, which will be offered October 14-November 10, 2014.
In order for newly hired faculty to succeed at their first single-gender school, we believe it is necessary to provide them with approaches to teaching and learning that are most effective for girls.
This four-week long online course allows newly hired teachers to connect and collaborate with each other to explore the possible implications of research on the classroom environment. The course is ideal for new teachers unfamiliar with the unique skill set associated with teaching in an all-girls school and helps acclimate these teachers to the style of learning that helps girls learn best.

2015 NCGS Conference!
From STEM to STEAM:
Girls' Schools Leading the Way
June 22 - 24, 2015
St. Catherine's School
The 2015 NCGS Conference will provide educators with an innovative opportunity to engage in hands-on activities, participate in content-based discussions, share classroom materials, learn about web-based teaching resources, and exchange best practices for teaching girls.
NCGS is excited to share our support of Made with Code, an important new initiative driven by Google. Computer Science and coding are quickly becoming the new literacy, but less than 1% of high school girls see Computer Science as part of their future. Google has launched Made with Code, a social initiative to create a coding culture for girls based on creativity and making, which will strive to inspire millions of girls to experience the power of code.
