Check out where the Purnell Class of 2016 is headed

Purnell School transforms the lives of young women with learning differences. For girls with dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, ADHD, executive functioning, auditory processing disorder, and other language and attention-based learning differences, we are a haven.

For girls with school and home-based learning challenges who thrive in a
small learning environment or for whom English might not be their first language, we are their match.

Campus Highlights

Innovation & Education


We understand that students are as likely to discover a driving interest or passion outside the classroom as in it and tailor our program to meet the interests of our students. A host of traditions and celebrations also make the Purnell experience memorable.

A truly Remarkable Location

Purnell is safely nestled away from the distractions of the city yet close enough to take advantage of the cultural attractions on weekends. The location is truly remarkable; close to the excitement and intellectual vibrancy of metropolitan areas yet removed enough to create a safe, reflective and inspirational atmosphere where girls thrive.
