Founded in 1885 as the first college-preparatory school for girls in the United States, The Bryn Mawr School is known as one of the premier academic institutions in the country.
The Bryn Mawr School inspires a passion for intellectual curiosity; emphasizes the delights and demands of learning; and nurtures the full potential of our young women in mind, body, and spirit. To prepare our students for lifelong learning and leadership, we are deeply committed to academic excellence, ethical decision-making, and the dignity of all people. A Bryn Mawr education is grounded in the expectation that young women will be resilient in the face of complexity, ambiguity, and change; will become responsible and confident participants in the world; and will lead considered and consequential lives.
Our Commitment to Diversity
The Bryn Mawr School is deeply committed to growing as a diverse, equitable, and inclusive learning community. We are dedicated to providing an education that is rooted in the ideals of equity and justice and that reflects the diverse identities, experiences, and voices of our constituents. By honoring and nurturing the unique differences within our school community, we teach our students to better understand and contribute to the wider world. To prepare our students and ourselves to lead considered and consequential lives, we believe it is essential that we develop the ability to identify, question, and challenge bias and acts of discrimination. As we strive to build a community that celebrates and values each individual, Bryn Mawr will engage in an ongoing review of our policies and practices that address bias and discrimination.
