Grier School is a private boarding school for girls, founded in 1853 in Central Pennsylvania. The facility is located in a quiet, calm and safe area, surrounded by a beautiful old forest: the total area of the well-groomed area reaches 320 acres – there is everything necessary for study, sports and outdoor activities, walks and picnics. The school is located on the east coast of the United States, in the city of Tyrone, the nearest major cities are Pittsburgh and Washington.
Grier School strives not only to give girls a quality comprehensive education, but also to develop them as individuals and personal opportunities, to show their talents and abilities. Here girls learn to listen and hear, to make important decisions, to think and communicate among themselves. After studying the graduates become more responsible, develop leadership skills and self-esteem.
Grier School works under the direction and management of the Board of Trustees, the director is Douglas Grier: Ph.D. and representative of the Griè family in the fourth generation. The slogan of the school is the saying Sana Mens In Corpore Sana – A Sound Mind in a Sound Body, or “In a healthy body – a healthy mind.”
Grier School programs are grades 7-12: academic subjects, arts or sports. Also, the girls can participate in the AP or TOEFL / ESL program, and especially persistent and gifted pupils can become members of the Elite Scholars classes. In the last year of studying, all the girls are consulted on the choice of the future educational institution: they are helped to compile a list of universities and programs that allow them to obtain the chosen profession, and at the end of the year they submit documents to approved universities along with their advisors.
