Courage comes in many forms, such as trying something new. Our sports teams are open to all students; we don't hold tryouts. We often see students in 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grades trying a team sport for the first time, which is a great confidence builder!
Director of Admissions
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 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.
Sixth Grade Community Garden
The sixth grade is working on our community garden at Humphrey Calder! We've planted fall crops and welcome all to stop by and harvest! Enjoy!
Eighth Grade Concord Trip
When spring arrives, our 8th grade girls travel to Concord, Massachusetts to visit Orchard House, the home of Louisa May Alcott and her family. While in Concord, our girls learn and see how Louisa May Alcott and her family, friends, and neighbors lived out their beliefs every day. The VOICE of the Concord community during Louisa May Alcott’s life continues to inspire and educate our society today.
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
