School Songs


Hail Girard, our Alma Mater, Noble, fair and strong;
Cradle meet for civic virtue, Praise her with a song.
First thou art in worth and beauty, First in our regard;
Sing we then our Alma Mater, Mother dear Girard.

Children of the great Republic, Lovers of the flag be-starred,
Mighty masters of the future, Swell the chorus, shout Girard.


In honor of our founder and benefactor Stephen Girard, students learn the French national anthem,
singing it in French at special school and alumni events.


Allons enfants de la Patrie
Le jour de gloire est arrivé !
Contre nous de la tyrannie
L'étendard sanglant est levé (repeat)

Entendez-vous dans les campagnes
Mugir ces féroces soldats?
Ils viennent jusque dans vos bras.
Égorger nos fils, nos compagnes!

Aux armes citoyens
Formez vos bataillons
Marchons, marchons
Qu'un sang impur
Abreuve nos sillons
