Girls Preparatory School

While one can argue that coeducational schools offer a level playing field for both girls and boys, in a learning environment tailored specifically to girls, they receive the support needed to become their authentic best selves. There is a difference.
Research shows girls mature sooner than boys and tend to be more emotionally and socially perceptive and expressive. They also thrive while working closely with their peers and form relationships more acutely with their teachers than do boys. When girls feel safe, comfortable, and supported in their environment, they can begin to take risks and discover their interests and passions without fear of failure.
In the all-girl classroom, girls feel safe to explore new topics, take risks, fail, and recover. The essential support structure girls need for healthy exploration—both in their educational pursuits and their socialization—comes in the type of environment that GPS provides, one that is simultaneously challenging and reassuring.
Step on campus and see for yourself why we are best for girls. Tours are led by Admission counselors and student ambassadors. Your daughter is welcome to attend. Visit GPS.edu/Tour to schedule your tour today or contact us at [email protected].
