Welcome to GPS

Unlike Any Other

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Because you are visiting our website, you are very likely exploring schools for your daughter that offer more than a high school diploma and a pathway to a top-tier college or university. If your goals for your daughter include finding a school that cares about who she’ll become as much as what she’ll accomplish, we invite you to consider the unique advantages of a GPS education. 

As a school for girls, every aspect of the GPS culture, curriculum, and experience is designed based on what girls need to thrive. Relying on the latest research on girl development and our 115 years of experience in educating girls, we not only understand girls, but we also know how to best uplift, support, nurture, and equip them for their futures. 
Our breadth of program is unmatched in the Chattanooga region. We deliver rich learning experiences that challenge girls academically while encouraging them to step beyond their comfort zones in the classrooms and out in the community. At GPS, girls are given myriad opportunities to build confidence, exercise independence, identify their strengths and passions, and find their voices. Whether they’re learning code, operating a 3D printer, performing modern dance, embracing a second language and culture, or trying a new sport, their GPS sisters, teachers, and coaches will encourage them every step of the way. 
We invite you to learn more about our unique community and we are certain that as you get to know our students, faculty, coaches, and the mission and values that drive them, you will be excited about what an all-girls school can provide your daughter. You might also gain more insight into her mind, heart, and untapped potential and glimpse the opportunities her future holds.
Sharing your belief in the power of your girl,
