From Grier School

Grier School is a girls' boarding school founded in 1853. Students learn in a supportive environment and become emboldened, engaged, and poised for the future. Young women find in-depth scholarship and wide variety in the Grier curriculum. At Grier, girls achieve a balance of analytical thinking, creative expression, and physical fitness. The purposeful balance in offerings ensures students graduate with technical knowledge in STEM and broad skills developed in the humanities, such as the ability to think critically, communicate clearly, and solve complex problems.
