At Orchard House you can be your own self. No one cares about your quirks because everyone embraces you for who you are. Everybody’s voice is heard and everyone is equal. Even if someone is good at one thing, you’re good at another and you can learn from each other.

I find one of the most striking aspects of Orchard House is its commitment to creating a community that reflects diversity on all levels. Whether it is diversity represented by one of the “Big 8” or diversity in a girl’s learning style, we are committed to taking this community of learners through a process that will allow each individual girl to become herself.

Orchard House School has given us the confidence to be who we want to be and to each be our individual selves. We were really prepared for high school – it was a challenging adjustment, but we were ready for it.
So often a middle school girl will try to be just like the other girls in her school. The girls will all try to be the same--wear the same clothes, read the same books, play the same sports. But OH girls are learning to be themselves. At the same time they are embracing each other’s unique differences. They understand that these differences are useful and important in life and they are loving every minute of it.
Orchard House School has provided our daughter with the confidence to explore her identity while feeling safe in a community that encouraged her voice and personality to be unique and independent. Throughout our four-year journey, our family has grown and fostered life-long relationships.
Orchard House believes the world is a better place when students are engaged, constructive, and useful. It is with the long view in mind, imagining girls as adult women, global citizens, leaders, and followers that Orchard House School was developed and designed.Read More
