Greetings to all friends of Girard College!
Although our students are enjoying their summer vacations and a relative calm has beset campus, there is still plenty going on. Beginning July 10, students from all over the Greater Philadelphia area arrived on our campus for four weeks of sports and enrichment programs. These students are digging their cleats into the turf at soccer camp, honing their voices at debate camp, battling for position at basketball camp and much more.
This summer, we are opening our gates on select Saturdays to the public! On Saturdays July 8, August 12 and September 9, we’ll be welcoming walk-in visitors to Founder’s Hall for tours from 12-3. Read more here ...
Not only have the students been busy this summer, but our academic and residential faculty participated in an intensive week of professional development in preparation for the next academic year. Additionally, the entire administration has been working to implement plans that will be the cornerstone of our programming this fall.
As we prepare for the upcoming school year, we are already accepting applications for 2018-19. In order for prospective parents and students to effectively plan their educational options, we have committed to making admission decisions by early 2018. If you are interested in applying to Girard College, please access our online application to begin the process. Our Enrollment Management team is ready, willing, and able to assist you!
Please have a safe and wonderful summer. We look forward to seeing you on campus!
