Boarding Programs for Girls in Grades 7-12:

Academics:

Photo of Boarding School in Pennsylvania for GirlsIt is the school's philosophy that an active agenda helps to enrich the educational experience of young people. For this reason, all students are required to participate in academics, athletics and the arts. We offer a rigorous college preparatory curriculum with English, math, science, history, modern languages, the arts and athletics.

Grier's academic day include seven academic periods, an afternoon sports time and required study hall in the evening. Squeezed into short periods in the day are times for involvement in clubs and special classes such as the Healthy Lifestyle Program or the Etiquette Class.

Grier offers a well-balanced educational program for girls in grades 7 through 12. In addition, a post-graduate program is offered on a limited basis. Generally speaking, the 7th and 8th graders are considered as members of our middle school.

Grier's high school program includes all students in grades 9 - 12. Core academic classes such as English and History may be grade specific meaning that a 9th grader would be in a 9th grade English class with fellow 9th graders. All other classes have a mixed enrollment, based on ability. It is not unheard of for a math class to have kids from three or four grades in the same room since a student's involvement is determined by academic ability and preparation.

Advanced Placement Courses:
Advanced students are able to take AP classes when qualified. AP courses not regularly offered within our scheduled classes may be taken "on-line" with a faculty member overseeing the work. AP classes offered this school year are: Art Portfolio, Calculus, Art History and Biology.

We offer SAT and ACT College Preparation Courses.
