From Marlborough School

Marlborough girls are encouraged and empowered to use their strong voices and leadership abilities to make a lasting difference in the world we all share. Visitors to our campus witness this every day – in our classrooms, on the field, in the Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation, and projecting from the stage. No boys makes a difference; with no gender biases or barriers, girls here see their potential as having no limits.

Are you a Marlborough girl? Let’s find out! Our process invites you to visit classes, root for the Mustangs, and discover "Why Marlborough?" for yourself.

Contact us at admissions@marlborough.org – we’re happy to help!

    I so believe in Marlborough's core values and formative role in contributing to the person I am today. When I was at Marlborough, I took for granted that all or most schools were the same. In college at UCLA, I realized that was not the case. College was easy after all the preparation and encouragement I had received at Marlborough. And now, 25 years out from graduation, I am still in touch with many of classmates and see them regularly - the life long friendships are another bonus!

    Marlborough is absolutely terrific. Classes are great and the schedule is devised in a way that from the start the girls are engaged in both traditional academics and a wide variety of electives. Extracurriculars are abundant and facilities are uniformly top-notch (especially since the completion of the recent Arden expansion). Girls come from diverse backgrounds -- including racial, socioeconomic and geographic (the entire city is well represented). Teachers are highly skilled and very available to students for 1:1 communication. Marlborough fosters original thought and leadership from its students. Girls are expected to be organized and active in their own academic path but there are also strong support services available for girls who need additional help/support in this area.
    Marlborough is widely considered to be one of the top schools in Los Angeles. There are maybe 2-3 other schools that are considered as academically rigorous, and even friends who are alums of those schools will usually say Marlborough was more difficult. That being said, it can be a high stress environment and the competitive nature of the school isn't for everyone. Girls who are a good fit for the school, however, will thrive in an environment where they're given virtually unlimited resources and encouraged to pursue their passions. Students are top performers in whatever they do, whether they're artists, athletes, dancers, entrepreneurs, philanthropists, or activists. I work in LA and I've had coworkers/clients who ask where I went to high school are always impressed by the Marlborough name.
