Why Choose an All-Girls School?
In 2013, the National Coalition of Girls Schools (ncgs.org) conducted three years of research, surveying 13,000 girls attending all-girls schools, coed independent schools, and coed public schools. The result is the report Steeped in Learning: The Student Experience at All-Girls Schools. The girls’ responses provide unequivocal support (see below) for the value of an all-girls educational environment.

Alumna and St. John’s University Law Professor Rosemary Salomone ’64 is one of the leading researchers on the benefits of an all-girls education and the author of Same, Different, Equal: Rethinking Single-Sex Schooling (Harvard University Press, 2010). “There is a spontaneity, a synergy, an emotional security, and a sense of community that seem to flow out of shared experiences and common purposes as young women. What I saw and what I heard from students, parents, staff and alumnae was that these schools are safe harbors where girls can securely weather the storms of adolescence while nurturing their spirit and intellect.” Rosemary Salomone At Saint Saviour, our young women are examples of the power of an all-girls education: • The 2016 Varsity Softball team won the BK-Queens A Division Championship and the A Division City Championship. • The 2015-16 Cheerleading Squad took 2nd place in the GCHSAA Competition. • The Gaelic Society won “Best School Unit” at the the 2016 Brooklyn Irish-American Parade. • Madeleine ‘16 is attending the Naval Academy Prep School in Newport, RI. • Victoria ‘16 earned two scholarships through the ACE Mentorship Program and is attending George Washington University, studying Systems Engineering. • Taylor ‘16 attended the NeXt Doc film Festival for future film makers and is attending NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, studying film. • Yao ’16 and her research partner presented their research project in the prestigious Science Research Mentoring Program at the American Museum of Natural History as part of the 3rd Annual Student Research Colloquium. • Lauren ‘17 scored her 1,000th Varsity Basketball career point on 2/5/16. • Jamie ’17 participated in the ACE Mentorship Program, building a mock model of a Coney Island train station and block. • Brigid ‘19 took second place in the Commodore Barry Club - High School Essay Contest.
