Girls School Academics
ANC Girls School provides a rigorous academic program for girls in grades 9–12. Our curriculum is tailored specifically for developing female minds, and encourages academic growth and creative intelligence over the course of four years at ANC.
An ANC Girls School education begins in ninth grade with caring teachers and a challenging all-girls environment. Girls study foundational subjects such as English, Introductory Physical Science, Fundamentals of Art, Ancient History, and Latin.
As sophomores, our girls are challenged to develop their individuality, building on the foundations of freshman year. Our girls are given additional flexibility in their courses, choosing from a variety of options in mathematics, art, and language.
Junior girls are given increased freedom in their curriculum, with options to select courses that match their interests and talents. We offer honors and advanced placement courses in a number of subjects and provide additional electives in visual arts, performing arts, history, religion, math, and science.
Senior year at the Girls School challenges girls to think independently and develop original ideas. Girls continue their studies in science, math, and languages, and are also encouraged to take on independent and creative research in our specialized courses. Students who lean toward the sciences can elect to take physics, chemistry, or ecology in addition to the required Human Anatomy and Physiology course. Students interested in the arts can enroll in Performing Arts Portfolio or Visual Arts Portfolio, which will help them develop a rich and varied portfolio of work. Seniors prepared for a challenge are also invited to participate in our Senior Project course, which challenges them to explore and research their own independent projects, developing them through a paper, a presentation, and a portfolio of work.
