Thanks to our small class sizes, our students learn that there is enormous potential and power in being in an all girls’ environment. McGehee is a school of girls for girls. Our students understand that they can do anything because here girls fill every role.
We know that choosing an independent school comes with a large financial commitment. A significant portion of our student body receives financial assistance to help cover the cost of tuition; we work hard to make our offerings accessible and inclusive.
