The Ellis School is located in the Shadyside neighborhood of Pittsburgh.

Surrounded by six different neighborhoods, the Ellis campus is just a short walk away from museums, parks, restaurants, and retail shops. With plenty of family-friendly activities, places, and events in the vicinity, there is always something for Ellis girls and their families to do.
In addition to our vibrant, urban location, Ellis is located at the heart of a growing innovation zone in Pittsburgh. The School’s proximity to Pittsburgh technology hubs like Google, Uber, and Carnegie Mellon University provides students with firsthand experiences and opportunities that supplement and enhance their studies.


On-campus parking is available to families in the front parking lot on Fifth Avenue and in the rear lot at Penn Avenue and Bakery Square Boulevard, behind the Bakery Living Orange apartment complex. For athletic events and practices, Ellis families should park and pick-up their daughter(s) in the rear parking lot. Please note that front parking lot spaces are limited due to faculty and staff parking.
