Despite exploring various options, implementing cost-cutting measures, and intensifying our fundraising efforts, like other small, independent schools, AGS continues to face many economic challenges. Those challenges coupled with a diminishing demand for single-gender education have created an unsustainable financial path forward into the 2024-25 school year. This has resulted in the Board of Trustees making the very difficult decision to close the school at the end of this academic year in May 2024.

The last day of classes for students is Tuesday, May 21, and Upper School exams will take place Wednesday, May 22 – Friday, May 24. AGS will close on May 24, 2024, the last day of the academic year.

AGS will finish the current academic year, remaining focused on students’ education. We are here to support students and parents as they determine their next right step.
