We continue to be a leading proponent of STEAM – Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics – education for girls. Utilizing the advantages of the all-girl environment to its fullest, our program seeks to make successful entry into technical disciplines a real possibility for our graduates.
SCIENCE - In each division, we strive to convey the importance of science in everyday life through
developmentally appropriate laboratory investigations and opportunities for experiential learning.
TECHNOLOGY - Computers and programmable smart phones dominate our culture. Our offerings in computer science prepare our girls to understand what makes those devices “think” and, if they so desire, to pursue future work in the exciting world of information technology.
ENGINEERING - Our robotics program addresses the engineering aspects of STEAM. From LEGO kits in Lower School through robotics courses, clubs and competitions in the Middle and Upper Schools, our girls learn to confidently navigate this male-dominated universe.
ARTS - Arts education is a key to creativity, and creativity spurs the innovation necessary to create the new solutions and new industries upon which our future economic well-being depends.
MATHEMATICS - When do girls start believing that math is not for them? At Agnes Irwin, the answer to that question is “never.” From Lower School through grade 12, our collaborative, hands-on program fully prepares students to comfortably navigate the world of numbers.
