At Atlanta Girls’ School, the experiences celebrated within our community are reflected in the individualized college search process and selection made by each girl.
Our graduates attend Ivy League schools, prestigious liberal arts colleges, and respected research institutes.
All AGS graduates have been accepted to a four-year college or university. We counsel all students to select a strong match between their interests and appropriate offerings at higher education institutions. In assessing college choices, each girl’s talents, aspirations, and personality are important considerations.
College exploration opportunities at AGS begin with an introductory program in 9th grade, and then expand into comprehensive, year-round programming for 10th, 11th, and 12th graders.
Elements of resume preparation, public speaking, interviewing and writing skills are also developed through Leadership Labs, internships, and global travel. Here are some highlights of the AGS College Counseling program:
“Transitioning from AGS to a large university was made easier by the meaningful relationships I had with my teachers at AGS. They will always be there to support me, and it is really nice knowing that even when I am away at school I can call many of them for help or advice.”Laura Rogers, AGS '11, Duke University '15
