Why choose Agnes Irwin? Because we know girls — and we've been empowering them since 1869.
Our oldest daughter started at AIS in second grade and graduated in 2011; our second daughter graduated in 2016. Now our third and last daughter graduated in 2018. Thirty-seven academic years later, we have found Agnes Irwin an excellent school that has helped our daughters become advocates for their own learning. We’ve had an awesome run.

"Agnes Irwin is a community, not just a school. Our girls are engaged, curious, caring individuals who are deeply connected to each other and our outstanding faculty and staff. For almost 150 years, we have graduated bright young women who are equipped to lead and make an impact on the world around them. With over 30 years of experience in independent schools, I can happily say that Agnes Irwin is leading the way in all-girls’ education. Come see for yourself!"
"Agnes Irwin gives girls the confidence they need in the classroom, on the field, on the stage, and beyond — celebrating the individuality and strengths of each girl but also empowering them to try new things in a nurturing and accepting environment. Ultimately, it prepares them to take on the world in whatever capacity they desire. I am fortunate enough to have experienced this firsthand as a member of Agnes Irwin's Class of 2005 and now as a member of the Admission Team. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to give back to this special community that has given me so much!"
"Through my role as a college admission officer, I was always impressed with the applicants from Agnes Irwin. It was evident that the school provided girls with strong academic and extracurricular opportunities that simultaneously engaged them in the present while preparing them for higher education. I welcomed the chance to be a part of that process."
"Agnes Irwin is a place where students are challenged to be their best selves every day, starting in Prekindergarten. Our girls are confident, joyful, and eager to learn. The Lower School faculty and staff know how young girls learn best, and create an engaging learning environment that is full of wonder. I feel privileged to share the value of an Agnes Irwin education with prospective families."
"I marvel at the innovation, inspiration, and exploration that happens at Agnes Irwin every day. It is an invigorating place to work where the strong sense of community and commitment to all-girls' education is at the heart of everything we do. In enjoy helping families navigate the admission process."
