Who Thrives Here

Whether you are an athlete, a military family or a student looking for a more challenging curriculum with personalized support, families from around the United States choose Bryn Mawr Online to connect, learn and thrive.

ATHLETES + ARTISTS

From equestrians to performing artists, Bryn Mawr Online is for girls who thrive with a flexible schedule.

“My daughter spends a good deal of time outside of the classroom training and competing her horses. Additionally, she spends winters in Florida competing. The online aspect allows her to participate in a rigorous academic program, while also providing flexibility to spend an adequate amount of time participating in her sport.”

—Brian Wood, Current Parent

MOTIVATED LEARNERS

Connect with bright and talented girls from around the country and earn your diploma from a nationally ranked private school—wherever you are.

“She has been allowed the autonomy to work and interact in a classroom setting, while also having individual time to practice and work independently….right now she is completing an in-person course at a research institute on the subject of bioinformatics. This would not be possible within a traditional high school format.”

—Tim Rhodes, Current Parent
“Intrinsically motivated, curious, students with strong computer skills and senses of humor do very well here.”
Frank Ecker
Faculty Member

FAMILIES WANTING SUPPORT

Our Success Coach model gives each student personalized support and encouragement every step of the way.

“Small size online classes allow each child to get more attention and help. One of the advantages is that the communication between students and teachers is effective and timely, the Success Coach for each girl is very helpful.”

— Current Parent
“I love the personal attention I can give to each student. We are more like a small tutoring group than a class.”
Alaina Buse
Faculty Member

MILITARY FAMILIES + TRAVELERS

Virtual learning, live classes, real connections—learn with other bright and talented students from across the country, no matter where you are.
I've enjoyed how collaborative the faculty is and how engaged everyone is in making this a great experience. It is fun to reimagine what school and learning can look like!

“Our family moves frequently as a result of my Army career, so we were looking for a program that would provide my daughter with a stable high school experience immaterial of where we live. Bryn Mawr Online High School provides our family with the flexibility to make frequent moves while keeping continuity with teachers and peers. Bryn Mawr has a great academic reputation and we were very excited to find a program that would support her and challenge her while encouraging her to discover and pursue her interests.”

—Tim Rhodes, Current Parent

“Bryn Mawr Online allows us to access Bryn Mawr without living in Maryland. It allows our family the flexibility to travel.”

—Current Parent

GIRLS

With opportunities to lead and learn, our all-girls community will help you strengthen your skills, explore your potential, and flourish in any subject.

“We feel that in an all-girls environment our daughter will have more opportunities to assert leadership and show excellence.”

— Current Parent

“Going to school with all girls eliminates the competition for a boy's attention or dealing with the drama that happens in coed schools.”

— Current Parent

“Going to school with all girls is a really great experience. It helps to build great friendships when a lot of them go through the same experiences that you do.”

Meet Mallory Pladus

English Teacher

Where do you live?
Lancaster, Pennsylvania

What do you like about teaching online?
I like the small school environment, the ambitious students BMOS attracts, and the
flexibility learning and teaching online affords students and faculty.

What do you like to do when you’re NOT in school?
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.

Best way to spend a Saturday?
Reading outside.

What do you want students to remember about you?
I want them to remember that I did my best to make literature open up for them in
surprising, intriguing ways and that I cared about their ideas.

Personal catchphrase?
“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.
