About the Girls School
In 1884, a Girls School that was privately set up by Sarah DeCharms Hibbard was incorporated into the Academy of the New Church, joining the Boys School to create the ANC Secondary Schools.
Today, ANC Girls School continues to provide stellar preparatory education for 9th–12th grade girls. The Girls School gives our girls a nurturing and safe environment in which to grow academically, morally, and spiritually.
The Girls School is a New Church institution, so our students are challenged to grow morally as well as intellectually. We strive to help our students to support one another, behave with integrity, and become confident and charitable female leaders.
Our academic program at the Girls School is designed to provide the best possible education for our girls. As freshmen, girls take mostly single-gender courses, which allows them to excel in the classroom and grow in confidence. As they progress toward graduation, more courses are collaborative (co-educational with the Boys School) allowing our girls to benefit from the complementary perspectives of our Boys School students.
In extracurriculars, our girls are given opportunities to thrive independently—our athletic program is rich and varied and our campus clubs provide all-girls camaraderie. And since we share our purpose, our school pride, and our campus with the Boys School, our girls benefit from cooperation with the boys school students in extracurriculars such as performing arts and community service.
ANC Girls School provides our girls with all the benefits of an all-girls education—from strong female role models to academics tailored specifically for developing female minds. And at the same time, our collaboration with the Boys School allows us to offer our girls all the advantages of a co-ed environment—from camaraderie to a shared school pride.
