Living Leadership in Lower School
Our Leadership Toolkit© is central to our Lower School curriculum. Developed in partnership with Bryn Mawr College's Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research, the Leadership Toolkit brings abstract ideas about leadership to life for our youngest learners.
A cohort-style mentoring program provides an opportunity for Upper School students to explore careers, societal issues, and identity with adult mentors throughout the year. Our "allies," or adult women mentors, share their experiences and help guide students as they prepare to transition to higher learning.
