Residential Life:

Image of Girls Boarding School in Pennsylvania95% of Grier's students reside beyond a 100 mile radius of the school so numerous activities are organized each weekend to make it truly a full-time boarding school experience. Grier provides students wih a valuable education in a beautiful environment.

At Grier, the dormitory areas of the building are supervised by housemothers whose sole responsibility on campus is to oversee the life in the dorms. Housemothers are mature women who have raised families themselves. Their most important quality is that they like young people. Housemothers do daily room inspections to guarantee that girls keep orderly rooms with beds made and possessions organized.

Weekend Excursions:
Grier's students are all full-time boarders, therefore, a very complete schedule of trips is offered off campus each weekend. Girls can take trips to nearby stores or restaurants. Every few weeks a trip is scheduled to places as distant as New York City or Washington.
