The Washington School for Girls

The mission of the Washington School for Girls is rooted in the heritage of three courageous women and educators: Mary McLeod Bethune, Cornelia Connelly, and Claudine Thevenet. In their spirit, The Washington School for Girls provides a caring and safe environment for young girls who are living in an under-served urban area and are at risk of leaving school prematurely. The Washington School for Girls offers a solid and holistic education in the Catholic educational tradition, featuring intellectual challenge, respect for diversity, and support for the spiritual, social and emotional growth of each student.
