The All-Girls Advantage

With its challenging curriculum, engaged faculty, unmatched levels of student support, and innovative ways of building community, Bryn Mawr Online sets itself apart from other online schools.

There’s another advantage as well, one that’s distinctly Bryn Mawr Online–we call it the all-girls advantage.

As you consider an online high school, consider the benefits of an all-girls education, demonstrated scientifically and anecdotally.

Studies show that schools for girls create a culture of achievement and an environment in which attendees excel compared to their peers at coed schools.

Research* shows that:

“We feel that in an all-girls environment, our daughter will have more opportunities to assert leadership and show excellence,” shared a current Bryn Mawr Online parent.

Additionally, well-being is noted as a strength at girls’ schools, with fewer incidences of bullying. Students are less likely to feel like outsiders, but rather that they belong and can make friends easily.

Beyond the research, we see the ways Bryn Mawr Online girls lead every venture, challenge themselves in new ways and blaze bold trails, supported by a faculty that truly understands what girls need to thrive today and into the future.

“It’s a common thing we hear in applications: I love history and English but am terrible at math or science. Some girls are not as confident. We show them they can succeed in STEM, tailor our program, and talk about female leaders in the field to build up their confidence,” said Justin Curtis, Director of Bryn Mawr Online.

“They leave here knowing they have a seat at the table and that their voice matters.”

Hike, travel, play frisbee, and spend time on the Jersey Shore.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Japan. My dad is half Japanese, and there is a rumor in our family that he and my aunt relinquished property rights to a small portion of a mountain in Japan. I’d like to go see that mountain.

Reading outside.

“Let’s reflect on this.”

Who inspires you?
Writers I love: James Baldwin, Marilynne Robinson, Louise Erdrich, to name a few.

What activity/class have you enjoyed the most through BMOS (and why)?
The poet Sarah Ali visited our English 9 and 10 classes to discuss her poem about animal roadkill. The students asked great questions, and she gave thoughtful answers. We broached a topic that often feels too intractable to talk about.
