GIRL-CENTERED LEARNING

Grades 4 through 9

Calgary Girls Charter School (CGCS) is a public charter for girls and young women. Our vision is to help

develop confidence in young women at an age where research supports the strongest impact.

Our mission is to deliver exceptional learning in a safe environment. CGCS aspires to support

these young women and girls to go after their goals and help eliminate any obstacles along the way.

Creating generations of strong, confident young women.

OUR CURRICULUM

Our current Go Girls program was developed by CGCS teachers in 2008. This curriculum is unique to our school and is interwoven into our everyday teaching and learning. There are six essential program foundations, which are explored through multiple lenses in each grade.

Why an all girls school?

87%

of girls’ school students feel their voices – their opinions – are respected compared to 58% of girls at coed schools.

Graduates of girls’ schools are six times more likely to consider majoring in math, science, and technology and three times more likely to consider engineering compared to girls who attended coed schools.

93%

of girls’ school grads say they were offered greater leadership opportunities than peers at coed schools.
