Research and Orchard House Works


Orchard House School believes that engaged and productive students create a better world. Our school was designed and developed to imagine the future of our students as adult women, community leaders, global citizens and valuable contributors.


Adolescence lays the foundation for a lifelong sense of self. Along with identity formation and individuation, adolescence is a time of rapid physical, emotional, social, and intellectual growth. At Orchard House we view the variables of adolescence as positive catalysts for the future. The essence of an Orchard House education is the development of each girl's personal authority and consciousness so that she lives and contributes to the world with understanding, joy, hope, and courage.

Orchard House School is committed to fostering an inclusive environment where girls learn to use their personal and collective voices for the good of all. The wealth of individual differences is the heart of the school community. The many variables of diversity develop our capacity for understanding and in turn build and strengthen our humanity. At the core of an Orchard House education is the cultivation of respect both for one’s self and for all others. An Orchard House education aspires to create a culture where respect, encouragement, and care guide interactions both inside and outside of the classroom.
