Why Consider a Girls' School?

An all-girls' environment provides a wonderful opportunity for girls to explore who they are as young women and scholars without social pressure. It's good to be smart at Bryn Mawr! Our students are academically engaged, inquisitive and not afraid to speak their minds. Enthusiasm for all subjects--including math, science, public speaking, and technology--are nurtured from the youngest age; no discipline is "off limits" for girls. At Bryn Mawr, students collaborate with their fellow students in the classroom, on a sports team, or planning club activities. The girls learn quickly that they have much to offer and much to learn from one another. Life-long friendships are developed at Bryn Mawr.

  • Leadership Opportunities

    Leadership opportunities abound in student government, clubs, and athletics. Bryn Mawr students plan, propose, and lead over 40 new clubs each year (Princeton Model Congress, Operation Smile, Chess, and Cooking to name just a few). Bryn Mawr girls gain confidence in their leadership abilities as they prepare election speeches for class officer positions, speak to prospective families as leaders of the Ambassador Club, or learn to run a meeting in their role as club president.

  • Athletic Opportunities

    With more than 700 girls who like to play everything from ice hockey to squash, the variety and levels of athletics offerings is staggering! Team bonding and spirit are celebrated at Bryn Mawr. Whether an ace tennis player or the team manager, each girl's contribution is valued. Many girls continue to play their chosen sports in college.

  • Arts Offerings

    Bryn Mawr girls can be found building stage sets, developing photos in the darkroom, or playing the cello in a string ensemble. Dance, music, theatre, and the fine arts are an integral part of the curriculum at Bryn Mawr and are enjoyed by novices and serious aficionados alike. Bryn Mawr girls feel free to try their hands at many things.

  • Social and Emotional Support

    In this complicated and fast-paced world there are many issues that pertain to girls and their development. At Bryn Mawr, we speak about these topics freely. This comfortable atmosphere, with strong female role models as positive mentors, enables our students to open up and share their feelings and know they are not alone. It is this nurturing environment that allows girls to relax and become comfortable with themselves.

Bryn Mawr offers girls the academic and personal support they need as they develop from young girls into young women. It is an exciting process to watch. When the girls leave this campus as Bryn Mawr alumnae, we know they will succeed in whatever they choose to do. In the Bryn Mawr tradition, they will continue to learn and grow.

Bryn Mawr is proud to be a member of the National Coalition of Girls Schools. For more information on the many advantages of a girls' school, view the NCGS video below or visit
