Our students are free to explore new opportunities and possibilities in a supportive, encouraging environment. Girls are encouraged to try new paths, to follow ambitions, and to pursue leadership roles. In finding her voice and comprehending her value, a student at Grier comes to recognize the power and potential of being a girl in the 21st century. At Grier, girls become emboldened, engaged, and poised for the future.
Grier girls are challenged in the classroom and find support from teachers and peers to develop academic perseverance. In addition, Grier students develop critical thinking and communication skills that empower each girl to step forward, speak out, and get involved.
Students find a wide variety in the Grier curriculum
, which offers classes ranging from college preparatory to Advanced Placement® (AP®)
and in-depth scholarship through electives and advanced offerings. At Grier, small classes, passionate teachers, and hands-on experiences involve students and immerse them in a culture of achievement. The standards of faculty and instructors
are high, as are the levels of concern and support
provided to ensure that students experience success.
