A New Virtual Series from Ellis

Looking to raise a daughter who is not only armed with confidence but who steps up ready to make a positive change in the world? Tune out the noise and tune in (either live or on-demand) to Girl Talk: Conversations for Parents, a free, monthly virtual series from The Ellis School.
Girl Talk provides parents with a digital meeting space to hear from educators and experts who are versed in supporting girls to become bold, authentic, and intellectually vibrant changemakers. From responsible social media use to effecting change through STEM to community engagement, no topic is too big or small. These easy-to-access discussions will provide helpful resources and applicable strategies on how parents can raise girls who work collaboratively, ask questions, and pursue their dreams.

Pre-k & Kindergarten Virtual Info Sessions

Learn why Ellis is the best school in Pittsburgh for vibrant, intellectually curious, confident girls. Observe a comprehensive Q&A session—or all three—with the Head of the Lower School and current Ellis parents who will address a different topic in each session.
