Why Purnell?
Because some girls need to discover success in a different way than those provided by traditional, competitive and large high schools.

At Purnell, we offer a girl a chance to discover what she does best and to become the best she can at it. At Purnell, every girl "sits in the front row." Teachers practice what works best for girls and teach their classes in interesting, interactive ways. As a result, girls are engaged in learning and they feel successful in the classroom.

At Purnell, girls are encouraged to try new things and when they do they feel the support of their peers and teachers. Purnell is a place where one can grow into the woman she is meant to be, find a college that is right for her and learn important values to help her live a meaningful life. Be yourself, explore your strengths, find success, discover Purnell.

Our Mission 
Purnell School's mission is to educate young women in grades nine through twelve within a creative, reflective, and supportive classroom and boarding community. Students discover their unique strengths in preparation for college and the world. Purnell students learn to be ethical, independent, and self-confident working with faculty who act as mentors, teach to all kinds of learning styles and model the School's founding guidelines:

Consideration of Others
Truthfulness in All Relations
