Academics

Celebrating Girls

Girls at Annie Wright discover their passions, talents and value with the best of both worlds: an all-girls academic program with opportunities to interact, work and socialize with boys outside the classroom.
Research reveals that compared to their peers in co-ed schools, girls from all-girls academic programs perform better on academic achievement tests and report greater confidence and willingness to take risks. According to a study by UCLA’s Higher Education Research Institute, girls in all-girls academic programs:

  • score higher on SATs
  • report higher academic self-confidence, especially in math
  • tutor their peers more often
  • are more likely to talk to teachers outside of class time

At Annie Wright Upper School for Girls, students become actively involved in their own education and develop singular and strong voices that they use confidently, powerfully and persuasively throughout their lives.
