Despite the uncertainty of what this year will bring, we are prepared to offer a rich program to our students, whether they are learning on-campus, off-campus, or in a virtual classroom.

Learning Scenarios

We are currently planning to return to on-campus learning this fall. While safe, in-person instruction is our primary goal, Agnes Irwin has developed a plan that will allow us to move fluidly between all learning scenarios for the 2020-2021 school year as circumstances dictate. Our reopening plan is designed to be flexible and dynamic, allowing us to provide a rich student experience for every girl,
whether live on campus, in a hybrid learning environment, or in a virtual classroom.

With Support for At-Home Learning As Needed

Some cohorts of students learn on campus, while others learn remotely.
