Professional Development

At Agnes Irwin, we work to instill a passion and active pursuit of lifelong learning. The Center for the Advancement of Girls  is committed to supporting our teachers and staff in their understanding of the unique and evolving needs of girls. 
All of our teachers are kept abreast of current research, trends and best practices in teaching girls. The Center offers opportunities for faculty and staff alike to become well-versed in what girls need to thrive in every aspect of life.
