Growing Great Girls, Inc.


Growing Great Girls, Inc. was founded by a group of retired military women, dedicated to excellence in the education of girls and to the intellectual, creative, social and emotional growth of girls during their crucial middle school years. The intent was to create an environment where girls can find their voice; a place where girls can live their potential and become the person they were meant to be. Currently, the Board has evolved to the members listed below, each with the continued vision of a challenging and academically successful school. The Board is responsible for establishing policy consistent with the School’s mission, and ensuring that the programs and operations of the school are consistent with the terms of its charter.
