Heart of the AIS experience
At Agnes Irwin, we know girls!
We know how girls thrive and what makes them tick.
Within our walls, you will discover a special nature to our educational practice and curriculum – an innovative, vigorous, future-oriented academic program designed with “only girls” in mind and marked by a careful developmental approach that takes into account the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in an ever-changing world.
Our teaching reflects the enduring principles of a liberal arts education – with a strong emphasis on critical thinking, written expression, the study of modern and classical languages, physical and natural sciences and the mathematical world. Embedded in our curriculum are early-day leadership skills, the intentional application of best practices, and what we know to be true about girls as learners.
We hope you will take some time to explore our Academics pages. They will open the door to the myriad possibilities that lie ahead for any Agnes Irwin girl.
