Why All Girl?

"We believe a school for girls is better than a school with girls."
- International Coalition of Girls' Schools
Whether a girl wants to be an astronaut, ambassador, author, or attorney, girls need to know—not just think, but really know, deep down—there's nothing that can stand in their way. That's the incredibly important message girls' schools send to girls each and every day.
