At Girard College, we pride ourselves on delivering a rigorous, joyful, and transformative learning and living experience which fosters academic excellence, social development, wellness, and global empathy. Through a culturally relevant academic curriculum inspired by the tenets of our founder, Stephen Girard, learning is designed to challenge and inspire our students. Our distinguished faculty, composed of passionate educators, cultivates an environment where curiosity is celebrated, critical thinking is honed, and academic achievement is paramount.

Personalized Learning

Recognizing the academic strengths and abilities of each student, we embrace a personalized learning approach. With small class sizes of approximately 12:1 and a commitment to individualized attention, our educators tailor their teaching methods to meet the diverse learning styles of our students, ensuring that every child reaches their full potential.

Exceptional Faculty

At Girard, our faculty members are not just educators; they are mentors and guides who are dedicated to nurturing the intellectual and personal growth of our students. With a wealth of experience and a passion for innovation, our teachers create an engaging and dynamic learning environment.

Timeless & Modern Resources

Within our 43 acre campus, our school buildings are equipped with both rich history and advanced educational technology. Our classrooms provide students with the tools they need to thrive in a modern academic setting​​, promoting 21st century skills and competencies. We believe in leveraging technology to enhance the learning experience and prepare our students for the challenges of the future, yet we honor the significance of traditional learning environments, such as libraries and museums, and recognize the invaluable contributions they make to a robust educational experience.

Global Perspectives

Beyond the walls, application of learning is done through aligned exploratory experiences within our great city, our country and abroad. In line with our commitment to global empathy, we expose students to diverse perspectives and cultures. Through community service, like minded partnerships, travel abroad and exchange opportunities, we broaden student horizons and prepare them to navigate the world.

As a result of the Girard College student experience, students will be prepared for a postsecondary path aligned to their interests through exposure, opportunities, and support. Girard College is dedicated to preparing students for success in higher education and in life.
