Listening & Learning Tour

Since 2012, NCGS has conducted the Listening & Learning Tour. NCGS tracks trends in education and the girls’ school landscape by visiting member schools and attending conferences around the world. The NCGS team and board also represent girls’ schools at national and international conferences and symposiums giving speeches and presentations on the value of all-girls education.
