Girard College is an independent 5-day boarding school for grades 1 through 12. Students are considered for admission to first grade and sometimes to other grades when openings occur. Please visit the Admission Process page to learn more about applying to Girard.
Because of the generosity of our founder, Stephen Girard, all accepted students attend Girard with a 100% scholarship for tuition, room and board.
Girard College is a school dedicated to learning. Our students experience outstanding academics in the classroom, and they learn how to succeed outside of the classroom as well. Whether they are working on experiments in a science lab, or taking a tour of Independence Hall, our students are gaining knowledge. This environment of learning is the reason Girard College can provide the best for your child.
