Through collaborative relationships among faculty, students, families, and alumnae, Bryn Mawr students and graduates feel safe to grow intellectually, to take risks, to communicate clearly, and to engage productively with their community.

Each student is known as an individual and celebrated for her contribution to the larger community.

Mission Statement

The Bryn Mawr School inspires a passion for intellectual curiosity, emphasizes the delights and demands of learning, and nurtures the full potential of our young women in mind, body, and spirit. To prepare our students for lifelong learning and leadership, we are deeply committed to academic excellence, ethical decision-making, and the dignity of all people. A Bryn Mawr education is grounded in the expectation that young women will be resilient in the face of complexity, ambiguity, and change; will become responsible and confident participants in the world; and will lead considered and consequential lives.

The Bryn Mawr School honors the dignity and rights of all people. We believe that a diversity of opinions, experiences and backgrounds are fundamental to an exceptional education. Our curriculum, program, and school life are greatly enriched by a wide range of experiences and perspectives. We value and cultivate each student voice while fostering individual and collective responsibility for the building of a more equitable and just world.
Our students live deliberate, considered and consequential lives, with the resourcefulness and self-awareness to make choices for themselves. They know where they want to go and how to create the lives they want to live. They are well-prepared, creative thinkers. They are confident and resilient. They are dynamic, joyful, energetic, powerful and smart women who care for the world.
