Ready for Anything.

Girls thrive when their classes give them the opportunity to make choices, take risks and tackle real-world problems. Learn how Agnes Irwin applies proven, research-based best practices to deliver an exceptional education designed expressly for girls. 

That's why we empower girls — to explore, to reach higher, to speak up, to take part — from their very first day of Lower School. 

Everything our students experience is rooted in research about what's best for girls: how they learn, how their brains develop, and what their social and emotional needs are. Our girls are known, understood, supported, and free to be their very best selves. Throughout the journey, they’re guided by exceptional teachers — the kind who have a gift for bringing out the best in each girl.


Specifically, the freedom to explore and use her voice. To build confidence. To navigate the world with a growing sense of independence. 

To empower girls during these critical middle school years, we’ve developed an engaging and dynamic curriculum. Created collaborative classrooms. Built robust wellness and athletics programs. And brought leading academic, girl-centered research to our curriculum through our Center for the Advancement of Girls. Because in Middle School, she is spreading her wings, and continuing to soar.


Here she is free to explore, stretch, soar, and try anything. Agnes Irwin girls lead the way.

Upper School at Agnes Irwin is full of discoveries. Our rich curriculum provides students with a deep foundation in humanities, STEAM, wellness, arts, and athletics — and the opportunity to further explore their individual academic interests with extensive higher level courses. By the time our girls graduate, they're ready to take on whatever comes their way. They are unafraid to raise their hand, let their voices be heard, and make an impact.
