At Purnell, we offer a girl a chance to discover what she does best and to become the best she can at it. At Purnell, every girl "sits in the front row." Teachers practice what works best for girls and teach their classes in interesting, interactive ways.
Purnell School's mission is to educate young women in grades nine through twelve within a creative, reflective, and supportive classroom and boarding community. Students discover their unique strengths in preparation for college and the world. Purnell students learn to be ethical, independent, and self-confident working with faculty who act as mentors, teach to all kinds of learning styles and model the School's founding guidelines:
- Consideration of Others
- Truthfulness in All Relations
- Use of Common Sense
