Why Should I Go to a Girls' School?

All Girls Makes All the Difference!

“Going to an all-girls school has taught me that I shouldn't be afraid to speak my thoughts and opinions.”

“If you want to learn how to become an empowered and determined young woman, go to an all-girls school. Going to school isn't about impressing your peers, it's about impressing yourself.”

"We are a very close-knit community and this allows us to focus on what really matter, our academics. The administration also emphasizes the empowerment of women. They encourage us to help each other and that women can do whatever they set their minds to.”

“You should not go to a school just because it is coed: go for the education it provides. Being a transfer student myself, I can tell you that the teachers here are always available when you need them. I came to this school for the great education and preparation for college and I just happened to be blessed by being in a class with excellent and welcoming girls.”

“There is less room for distractions and more room to be yourself.“

What’s the one thing about the Academy that you want everyone to know?


“Our school is more than a school, it's like a home. You have to work hard, but it's a place to grow and learn with friends who are like your family.”


“Our school is a great environment that fosters confidence in one's abilities and helps young girls turn into independent, intelligent women.”


“It is wonderful to meet people who have the same ambition as you, who want to work hard and be someone in the real world.”


“The Academy is welcoming, open-minded, and engaging. We are able to discuss real world controversies in our classes and explore areas we otherwise wouldn't.”


“That sisterhood is strong, and that’s what AOSE is about.”


“The Academy is a big gift that comes in a small package. Everyone has the opportunity to be a ‘big fish in a small pond.’ There are classes, sports, extracurriculars, and clubs for everyone. We are able to shine in whatever we do best.”


“The Academy is not just a school, it’s a family - I know that the Academy has made me the absolute best version of myself. I love the Academy and EVERYONE HAS TO COME HERE.”
