What are girls day schools and who are they for?

At a day school your family has the option of choosing from a wide range of specializations and programs, including high quality facilities and extracurricular activities with the added benefit of dedicated teachers and small class sizes. Day schools ensure more parental involvement, allow for easier commutes, and are generally much less expensive than boarding schools.

The additional benefit of a girls school is that your daughter has the extra support and services that come along with a single-sex education, allowing her to flourish in an all-girls environment.

Benefits of your daughter attending a girls day school

At an all-girls day school, their curriculum reinforces girls’ specific learning styles and introduces them to a range of different subjects, encouraging young women to explore their interests, develop their sense of identity, and strengthen their self-confidence. These types of schools allow girls to express themselves and work toward goals in and outside of the classroom without the added pressure of a co-ed environment that can sometimes make them feel self-conscious.

Types of girls day schools available

Curriculums and programs at girls day schools will vary based on the type of school but can include everything from arts focused to faith-based to Reggio- inspired methodologies, and AP, IB or special needs schools. Before and after school programs may also be available, plus tutoring and learning study assistance, and a range of activities, languages, humanities and social sciences, mathematics, natural sciences, technology, sports, arts and academic or social clubs.

Costs of day schools for girls

Depending on the type of school and location, the cost will vary anywhere from $4,500 to $25,000 or more. But there are a number of ways to pay for girls day schools, including scholarships, bursaries and financial aid. Get more advice on ways to pay with these 18 tips you need to know.  

Choosing a girls day school

When searching for the right school fit for your daughter, think about her needs first and foremost and how a certain type of school might benefit her. Research schools by those factors that are important to your family and involve your daughter in the process. Bring her along to school visits and Open Houses if possible to experience the atmosphere and prepare some questions ahead of time.

Applying to a day school for girls

Application deadlines at schools will vary so confirm those dates ahead of time and be prepared to pay the application fees. Schools will often request copies of documents such as transcripts and report cards, among other forms, and your daughter may also be required to take a test, such as the SSAT.
