NCGS is the go-to place for girls’ education.

For families seeking information, you will learn from this site what girls’ schools do best — and it’s a lot! You will discover:

  • Girls’ school students find their voice and excel in academics preparing them for a purposeful life.
  • In an all-girls school, a girl can comprehend her value and her capabilities in ways that have nothing to do with her gender. She can follow her ambitions without wasting a second thought or a backward glance on the roles society has tried to define for her.
  • Girls’ schools create a culture of achievement in which academic progress is of great importance, and the discovery and development of a girls’ individual potential is paramount. Time in the classroom is spent learning. When you combine strong female mentors and positive role models, reduced gender stereotyping in curriculum and classroom, and abundant learning opportunities, the results are clear.

Explore our site to learn more! Not-to-be-missed resources include Why Girls’ Schools, Quick Facts, and the Raising Girls’ Voices blog. Find NCGS schools in your area with our Interactive Map & Membership Directory.

In the end, girls’ schools should not be judged by the absence of boys, but rather by the presence—the self-assurance, poise, and derring-do—of the girls themselves.
