Girard's Academic Stance

Girard College provides a holistic education across disciplines where our students learn to explore and grow. We provide a supportive and nurturing environment where each student is recognized as a physical, mental and emotional individual and a citizen of their community and the world.

Mindful of our past, we are always building toward the future, promoting 21st-century skills and competencies and a growth mindset. We want our students to be curious, to take academic risks, to find their strengths, to collaborate and commune with others, and to be lifelong learners and active citizens. Importantly, Girard College nurtures and develops students to contribute to the world around them and to live lives of social impact.
