Welcome to GPS

Explore All That Is Possible for Her

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. After all, a school is much more than the campus on which it sits or the accolades of which it boasts. Sure, English and calculus are important—and we have incredible faculty whose lesson plans are legendary—but the intangibles of education are equally important. Who does your daughter want to be? GPS is uniquely designed to help her get there.

Visit & Learn

As you begin the process of selecting the school where your daughter will continue her education, we encourage you to fully explore all options. The decision your family makes for your daughter will have a lasting impact on her life, and the best way to ensure GPS is the right environment for her is to visit our campus, attend admission events, participate in webinars, and hear from current parents and students, as well as alumnae.
