"Introduction to Girls' Schools" Online Course for Newly Hired Faculty

NCGS and One Schoolhouse (formerly Online School for Girls) are pleased to once again offer the highly successful Introduction to Girls' Schools, an online professional development opportunity. This course provides instructional insight to all teachers new to girls' schools, be they seasoned educators or new professionals. In order for your newly hired faculty to thrive and succeed at their first girls' school, it is valuable to provide them an orientation to the most effective methods for teaching girls.

Led by accomplished, respected girls' school educators, participants will connect and collaborate to explore best practices and research. They will also discuss ways to create a collaborative student-centered learning space, including how technology can help achieve these goals. Faculty will gain a clearer understanding of what it means to work in an all-girls school, come away with ideas of how to create a classroom atmosphere and curriculum that maximizes how girls learn, and connect to a cohort of girls' school faculty members.

Introduction to Girls' Schools is a four-week long course. Three sessions are being offered in 2016: June 20-July 15July 25-August 19, and October 10-November 4.

NCGS and the International Boys' Schools Coalition (IBSC) will present the second Conference on Coordinate Education to be held in Baltimore, MD, on October 20-21, 2016, at St. Paul's School for Girls and St. Paul's School.

This conference will explore the strategies, opportunities, and challenges of forming a coordinate education program between all-girls and all-boys schools. Whether your school currently has an established coordinate program or is considering one, we encourage you to attend this conference to learn more about best practices.

Should you wish to share best practices of your own, we invite you to submit a proposal to present a one-hour workshop on one of the following topics: Coordinate Academics - The Classroom or Coordinate Programs in the Co-Curriculum/Student Life. Please click here to apply.

Registration is open to all members of a school community, including senior level administrators, classroom teachers, and school trustees. Past participants found the experience to be particularly valuable when they were able to attend as part of a team from their schools. We are happy to extend a discounted rate to schools that register three or more attendees.
