About AIS

A place of discovery


Philadelphia all girls academyLaughter and lively conversation fill the hallways. Questions and opinions ricochet around the classrooms. Art projects adorn the walls, science projects line the windowsills, and cheers ring out from the athletic fields, gymnasiums and playgrounds.

This is the essence of The Agnes Irwin School – a place where girls take chances, discover their strengths and excel across a wide range of academic subjects and extracurricular pursuits. A place where girls are confident, engaged and excited about what lies ahead.

Located in the western suburbs of Philadelphia, PA, the school was founded in 1869 by Miss Agnes Irwin, the first Dean of Radcliffe College and the great-great granddaughter of Benjamin Franklin. Our legacy of excellence in all-girls’ education has been evident for over a century and continues to enable girls and young women to achieve their best.

We're a place that's big enough to inspire a sense of adventure, but small enough to feel like a real community.

But don’t just take our word for it. Explore our website or come for a visit to learn more about our history, our programs and, of course, our students.
