For more than
160 years, Girard College has provided excellence in residential
education for children, like yours, from single-parent families with limited financial
resources. We have educated generations of children, tuition-free, since 1848, thanks to the foresight and generosity of Stephen Girard and thanks to the Girard Estate, which provides most – but not all –
of the funding needed.
Today Girard, like most
independent and charter schools, depends on the generosity of our families, as well as friends,
alumni, faculty and board members.
to the Girard College Development Fund, large or small, will help to close the gap
between what the Girard Estate can provide and the actual cost of
educating and caring for your child.
We have wonderful plans for your students -- and we need your help to make them grow into informed, ethical and productive citizens. Thank you for your consideration and support.
