Why a Girls' School?

A 2018 study investigating the impact of all-girls’ education and the transition to college showed that when compared to their female peers at coed schools, girls’ school graduates:

  • Have stronger academic skills
  • Are more academically engaged
  • Demonstrate higher science self-confidence
  • Display higher levels of cultural competency
  • Express stronger community involvement
  • Exhibit increased political engagement

Read more about the study and listen to a podcast about the impact of girls’ education with Dr. Tiffani Riggers-Piehl, principal investigator of the study, on the National Coalition of Girls’ Schools website

Girls' school graduates were three times more likely than women graduates of coed schools to consider pursuing a career in engineering. The GFS Women in Science and Engineering Partnership with Johns Hopkins University helps prepare young women for STEM careers by equipping them with real-world, hands-on experiences. Learn more.
