An all-girls' middle school education offers unique advantages that cater specifically to the developmental needs and learning styles of girls. While co-education has its merits, single-sex environments provide unique opportunities for girls to thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

•       Boarding a middle school girl at Linden Hall offers her unique access to a 24/7 team of female dorm parents, who provide mentorship and coaching in important life skills.

•       Research suggests that girls often benefit from collaborative and discussion-based learning environments, where they feel more comfortable expressing themselves without fear of judgment or interruption from male peers.

       Adolescence is a period marked by significant physical, emotional, and social changes, and girls may encounter unique challenges related to body image, peer pressure, and self-confidence. In a single-sex setting, girls can form strong bonds with peers who share similar experiences and concerns.

       In contrast to co-educational environments, single-sex schools provide an environment free from unconscious biases from teachers and peers, allowing girls to explore a wide range of subjects.

       Single-sex middle schools often offer specialized programs and resources tailored to the needs and interests of girls.

By providing a supportive and nurturing environment free from gender biases and distractions, schools such as Linden Hall empower girls to excel academically, develop strong leadership skills, and pursue their passions with confidence and enthusiasm.

"My daughter is thriving in her first year at Linden Hall. They immediately leaned into her strengths and started driving her toward success...She's done exceptionally well this year, no doubt due to their careful support.

The diverse culture and inclusive climate at LH has deepened her curiosity and appreciation of individuality. She has the right help developing a clear strategy to get where she wants to go. We have no doubts she will reach whatever level of success she desires thanks to the Linden Hall family. Have you ever heard your daughter say she loves school? Can’t wait for winter break to be over? That she can’t think of think of one thing she doesn’t like about school? We have, and we’re grateful daily."
