Girls University’s academies span a number of different interests for girls. Each academy meets weekly or twice a month, on Friday nights or Saturday afternoons. These sessions are designed to gives girls real-life, hands on experiences in areas of interest. Each academy is centered around improving the well-being of the girl. We believe in each girl’s individuality and intentionally focus on three areas: Creativity, Education and Passion. Our academies work to create a safe and vibrant environment that allows girls to:
- Learn and master skills that nurture their passions, talents and potential.
- Bond with new friends and positive staff role models to create lasting memories.
- Know they belong so they feel welcome and free to express who they are.
- And above all – just plain fun!
