The Ellis School Values Each and Every Girl
Imagine a culture that challenges girls to rise above the norm. Imagine an environment that inspires hard work and rewards brilliant mistakes. Imagine a community committed to developing tomorrow’s leaders. Imagine a school that embraces diversity and seeks to make a difference in the world. These are the hallmarks of the Ellis experience. This is what empowers the Ellis student.
We give every girl the resources, safety, and support she needs to discover her best self and unlock her unique potential—both as a student and as a person. Here, girls are encouraged to dream big, lead with authority, and seize every opportunity.
The Ellis School is Pittsburgh’s only age 3 to grade 12 independent school dedicated to the superior education of girls and young women. We continually innovate to ensure that all aspects of the Ellis experience are of the highest caliber and are tailored to help girls thrive in school and excel in life. Since 1916, girls have enrolled here to come into their own and become outstanding women.
