About Us

We are Atlanta Girls’ School. We prepare girls for college. We help each girl develop a deeper sense of self, a firm command of her own voice, and the understanding that she is able and impelled to influence change in the world. 

In a world becoming exponentially more complex, girls will face challenges in college and beyond that will require curiosity, creativity, collaboration, and confidence to be solved.  At Atlanta Girls’ School, we teach girls to be world-class problem solvers. Our curriculum and culture emerge from a distinct vision of what girls must learn individually and collectively to become thoughtful and capable leaders.

We achieve this by using proven and emerging educational techniques tailored to how girls learn, integrating big-picture thinking, high expectations, and leading-edge technologies. More than any other school in Atlanta, AGS is purposefully built to provide the academic, social, and environmental advantages girls need.

"A girls' school may be the best preparation for the real world of the workplace and for life."
