College & Career

Challenging Stereotypes

Students have the opportunity to challenge and break down gender stereotypes in our all-girls setting. By engaging in a diverse range of academic disciplines, extracurricular activities, and athletics, girls develop a strong sense of self-belief and discover their passions. They are encouraged to explore fields traditionally dominated by men, empowering them to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and other male-dominated industries.

An Inclusive and Supportive Sisterhood

Our all-girls environment cultivates a supportive and collaborative atmosphere where friendships thrive. Students build lifelong connections with their peers, forging bonds of sisterhood and camaraderie. By eliminating social pressures often associated with co-ed schools, we create an environment that promotes authentic relationships and encourages young women to lift each other up. As part of an Academy sisterhood, students feel supported by their peers and teachers to create a space where girls feel comfortable expressing themselves, asking questions, and taking risks without fear of judgment.
