She’s bursting with creativity

The arts are fundamental to our humanity — and to an Agnes Irwin education.

Agnes Irwin girls dream big, stretch their brains, and ditch their comfort zones. Led by a faculty of juried visual artists, published playwrights, and professional performance artists, our students delve deep into the art of self-expression and discover the artist within. 


Acting, scriptwriting, casting, theatrical design, costuming, and directing are explored in our thriving Theater program. From Prekindergarten through 12th grade, our girls have the opportunity to produce and perform on our stage.
