At GPS, learning stretches far beyond the classroom. Through traditions, clubs, speaker series, student leadership organizations, and a coordinate program with our brothers and friends of McCallie School, the girls of GPS explore and pursue their purpose, fuel their confidence, find their voice, and develop lifelong friendships with each other and their coed peers.
"Girls' schools are focused solely on girls-how they learn, how they play, how they develop friendships, and what they need to be successful." —Trudy Hall, former President of NCGS Board and former Head of Emma Willard School
