The All-Girls Advantage

Vivian in the Library

Here, girls have taken center stage for over 150 years. Every aspect of Oldfields—from the classroom, to the athletic fields, and especially student leadership—is designed for girls. At a time when so many outside influences define who a girl should be, Oldfields provides a place free from that pressure and distraction—where girls can focus on who they are and what passions they wish to pursue. The result is young women who are filled with confidence, embrace leadership opportunities, and aspire to improve the world as they move on to college and beyond. Nothing could better describe an Oldfields girl.
