Change Agents

As the days grow darker and our political climate grows more and more divisive, it can be hard to feel hopeful about the future. Unless, of course, you talk to the students of Seattle Girls' School. Every student is encouraged to critically think about the world she lives in and become a change agent in her own way and in her own field.

An SGS student may tell you about her rally last week, when she and her peers educated adults in our community on the importance of voting and caught the eyes and ears of The Seattle Times. Or she may tell you about her project at the Teen Techathon, where she designed a winning and innovative social media product that would connect girls to academic mentors.

SGS Students remind us that grit and determination cannot be easily ignored, and we are thankful that our world is in their capable and innovative hands. 

Fall Fund!

The Fall Fund is a significant and yearly effort, which provides much needed funding for mission-critical programs and expenses and helps make up the gap between tuition and the actual cost of educating a girl at SGS. Let's lead the way and make the transformative SGS education a reality for every student, you can donate here » 

SGS Open House

An SGS Open House is a great opportunity for perspective families to learn about our programs as well as meet with current faculty, staff, students, and guardians. Please help us spread the word about our two upcoming Open Houses on Sunday, November 6th and Wednesday, November 30th. You can email Colleen for more information. 

Supporting Our Girls Through the Middle School Years

Join us at SGS on Tuesday, December 13th from 6-8 PM for an engaging evening with SGS founding faculty and Outreach Specialist Rosetta Lee as she talks about puberty, teenhood, identity search, relationship drama, and self doubt. Becoming a middle school girl can be fraught with challenges at every corner. How do we keep our girls resilient through this turbulent time? Examine the crossroads of socio-emotional and identity development, gender differences and bias, and adolescent brain and body changes that your girls are entering. What does the research say about best practices toward resilience, excellence, healthy relationships, and self esteem - and how does Seattle Girls’ School specifically apply the practices?

Community Association of Parents (CAP)

Join us on Friday, November 18th from 8:30-9:30 AM in the Singh House for our monthly CAP Meeting. Meetings will be held on the third Friday of each month unless there is a school calendar conflict.
