All-Girl Environment

The all-girl environment naturally encourages students to embrace leadership positions, become confident learners, and find easier ways to excel while breaking through traditional stereotypical roles. Studies indicate that females in single-sex environments have greater self-esteem and participate two and one-half times more often than within coed environments. Further studies indicate that young women from single-sex schools have higher career goals and more doctorate degrees than their counterparts in coed schools.
