Overview
Empowering students to achieve their fullest potential and live lives of purpose—this has been the core of Garrison Forest School since its founding in 1910. What was an innovative educational mission for girls at the turn of the 20th century remains so in the 21st century. Throughout our history, our mission has been to prepare young women for a rewarding college experience and for a purposeful life well beyond. Guided by our motto, Esse Quam Videri—To Be Rather Than To Seem—Garrison Forest's curricular and co-curricular program balances exceedingly high standards within a welcoming, spirited atmosphere. Located outside of Baltimore, the school's park-like campus offers collegiate-quality academic, athletic, arts and residential facilities. Our innovative partnership with The Johns Hopkins University, the Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) program, matches students with a Hopkins professor and lab to conduct research in science and engineering. Students may apply to be a Jenkins Fellow for an in-depth service learning project of their choice. Our new Equine and Veterinary Science program, expanded Robotics program, arts offerings, competitive interscholastic athletics (including riding and Polo at the national levels) and many clubs meet every interest, broaden horizons and provide leadership development. With Baltimore, Washington, D.C., New York City and other Mid-Atlantic cities and states nearby, students enjoy a variety of weekend activities. Here, students flourish intellectually and individually, find their voice, discover their passions and embrace their potential.
