Investing in Your Daughter’s Future

All-girls schools instill confidence, foster academic excellence, enhance aspirations and encourage engagement in the classroom and extracurricular activities. The Elms' curriculum, and teaching and learning strategies are designed to capitalize on the strengths of girls, allowing them to find the courage to be themselves, explore new ideas, discover new interests and grow as young women.

Our Class of 2018, comprised of 24 young women, were accepted into 66 different colleges and universities. Eighty-three percent of the seniors earned scholarships and honors totaling more than $4.4 million. Collectively, our seniors contributed an impressive 3,500 hours of service.
