Research Study: Fostering Academic and Social Engagement: An Investigation into the Effects of All-Girls Education in the Transition to University

Fostering Academic and Social Engagement: An Investigation into the Effects of All-Girls Education in the Transition to University (2018) focuses a lens on how graduates of all-girls schools today compare to female graduates of coed schools in terms of their academic characteristics and readiness for university. Drawing data from the well-known Freshman Survey conducted by the Higher Education Research Institute (HERI) at the University of California, Los Angeles, the researchers used multilevel analyses to separate the effect of an all-girls education from other influences including socioeconomic differences, race/ethnicity, parent education, and the characteristics of the high schools attended. The data reveals a consistent portrait of girls’ school graduates who are more engaged academically and socially than their coeducated peers.

The research reveals that girls’ school graduates have a clear edge over their coeducated peers.
