COLUMBUS SCHOOL FOR GIRLS
Who We Are: Since 1898, Columbus School for Girls has instilled in girls and young women the strength and grace (“forte et gratum”) to discover their distinct potential. We are a diverse academic community in which each student reaches her fullest potential as a scholar, athlete, artist, and, most important, as a compassionate human being. Combining a passion for learning with a deep level of self-confidence, CSG students leave the school inspired, prepared to make an impact on the world.
What We Do: Our mission is to empower girls to discover their distinct potential as learners and leaders.
Why We're Important: CSG is uniquely qualified to teach girls and young women, inspiring to take the leap from learners to leaders. Learning with a deep sense of engagement, working together toward a common goal, taking risks, rebounding from disappointments, thinking creatively and solving problems in unique ways: all of these are experiences that breed qualities essential to our girls’ success after CSG. These skills are specifically fostered and honed in our school community.
How We Impact the Community: CSG faculty, staff, students, and alumnae embrace a commitment to make our community and our world a better place in which to live and to work. Students participate in outreach programs and conduct service projects with local organizations; faculty and staff share their time and expertise with organizations across the area. Our alumnae are leaders in their communities and their professions, bringing honor to central Ohio and to CSG.
How You Can Help: Columbus School for Girls is characterized by challenging academics, enriching arts and athletics, supportive relationships, a sense of community that honors individuals and understands that the ability to navigate a world of people whose experiences, background, and perspective are different from one’s own, is both critical to a complete 21st-century education and essential to success in the world. Volunteers, donors, and friends help to make CSG the strong institution it is today while ensuring it remains a vibrant learning community for students of tomorrow.
