Garrison Forest School
Brave, compassionate, curious, spirited. Girls thrive at Garrison Forest School (GFS), a day and boarding school educating girls in grades K-12 with a coed preschool. Here, girls can be their authentic selves as they create with purpose, pursue their passions and lead with confidence.
Dedicated, highly engaged faculty members know each student and what’s important to her. Part of a comprehensive curriculum, STEM learning is fully integrated—from programs focused on programming, technology and research, to a partnership with Johns Hopkins University that gives Upper School girls an opportunity to work in research labs alongside Hopkins mentors.
The 110-acre GFS campus gives girls the space to explore, featuring a state-of-the-art athletic fields and an equestrian center that is home to nationally recognized riding and polo programs. National and international boarding students in grades 8-12 find a welcoming home base where they are supported by on-campus faculty residents and join a vibrant community with a full social calendar. The GFS campus is conveniently located about an hour drive from Washington D.C., two hours from Philadelphia and about three hours from New York City.
