Atlanta Girls’ School



 Atlanta Girls’ School (AGS) is a college-preparatory school for girls in grades six through twelve. Our graduates attend Ivy League colleges, leading southeastern universities, prestigious liberal arts colleges, and respected research institutes.

AGS teaches girls to be world-class problem solvers. The curriculum and culture emerge from a distinct vision of what girls must learn individually and collectively to become thoughtful and capable leaders. We achieve this by using proven and emerging educational techniques tailored to how girls learn, integrating big-picture thinking, high expectations, and leading-edge technologies. AGS girls develop a deeper sense of self, confidence grounded in competence, and the understanding that they are able and impelled to influence change in the world.

AGS students have unprecedented access to real-world experiences. All girls complete two customized internships with local,Atlanta-Girls-School-2 national, or international organizations. The internships, coupled with AGS’s signature global travel and community service programs, fuel a robust opportunity of extracurricular learning that culminates in students’ capstone projects and senior speeches to the entire school.
