She’s up for the challenge.

At Agnes Irwin, we teach girls to be fearless learners — to tackle the tough stuff, to risk failure, to rise to challenges — and come through ready for what's next.

Our innovative and rigorous curriculum is powered by girl-centered research and student-centered learning, allowing each student to discover her passions along the way. So whether she’s cataloging invertebrates as part of a stream study in Lower School, creating 3D models in our STEAM Studio in Middle School, or applying civil engineering skills to solve real-life traffic jams in Upper School, Agnes Irwin girls are learning the most important lesson of all: Girls can do anything!

Lower School (PreK-Grade 4)

We specialize in putting brains (and bodies) in motion. Our research-based curriculum balances challenging academics with wellness, helping girls thrive in daily math, language arts and Spanish classes, as well as in science, STEAM labs, art, music, and P.E.

Middle School (Grades 5-8)

We know girls, and our girls are known. To empower them during the critical middle school years, we've developed an engaging and dynamic curriculum, created collaborative classrooms, and built robust wellness and athletics programs.

Upper School (Grades 9-12)

Our curriculum empowers girls to explore their interests through tailored classes, independent research, and other ways to delve deep. We teach girls to recognize they can do whatever they set their minds to — and when they graduate, they're ready.

Let's innovate.

Create, experiment, tinker, and engineer. Our Innovation Team (iTeam for short) was developed to further promote curiosity-sparking, innovative, and enthusiastic learning environments — integrating technology and design-thinking into our classrooms, STEAM Studio, and iWonder Lab.
