The Madeira School

The Madeira School

At Madeira, our mission is to "Launch Women Who Change the World". Girls gain confidence, courage, and real-world experience so they can thrive in an ever-changing future. Our innovative, ambitious academic program, rooted in a Modular Schedule (where students take 3 courses at a time during five-week modules) and nationally recognized Co-Curriculum experience promote a joyful journey of self-discovery, challenge, and balance.


The Madeira campus community is inclusive, supportive, and highly collaborative - where girls feel safe and lift each other up. Our brand-new STEAM Center boasts state-of-the-art tools and technology that enhance our students’ experiences in the classrooms. We have beautiful fields, an athletic center with an indoor swimming pool, and a riding facility that provides our students opportunities to compete and enjoy physical health and wellbeing activities. And our dorms, Student Center, Auditorium, and library all bring us together in community for joyful events throughout the year.


Madeira is a place where girls can experience the joys of adolescence without judgement, so they are free to become their unique, best self. Inquire now!
