Hawthorn Leadership School for Girls
The Hawthorn Leadership School for Girls, a single-sex public charter school for girls in grades 6 through 12, will open in the fall of 2015 and will enroll students eligible for public schooling in the City of St. Louis. Hawthorn is a college preparatory school with a rigorous academic program. The faculty and staff of Hawthorn establish high expectations for the students in and out of the classroom, and provide the academic and developmental support the girls need to meet those expectations. Young women at Hawthorn are able to reach their highest potential, free from many of the pressures and stereotypes that prevail in today’s youth culture.
