Want to be a Leader?

Leadership at Foxcroft is an honor, a responsibility, and a skill. Girls gain confidence through active engagement, self-awareness, and skill development. Here, you learn to identify your strengths and communicate ideas in a variety of ways, such as a formal speech for election, daily words, and community participation. Supported by strong adult mentorship, girls are able to accept challenges, take appropriate risks, and identify opportunities for personal growth.

– Emily Johns, Assistant Head of School for Student Life

“Our hope is that when our girls graduate, they will feel confident in their abilities, inspired by the strengths and talents of others, and ready to engage the world in positive and meaningful ways.”
