Hawthorn Leadership School for Girls

Students & Families

Your daughter is college bound.

Hawthorn Leadership School for Girls is a nurturing and supportive environment for adolescent girls.  

Our goal is that 100% of our graduates are admitted to college. Hawthorn graduates will make a long-term positive difference in the St. Louis community.

Hawthorn leaders, faculty and staff establish high expectations for our students in and out of the classroom. We understand the importance of nurturing the “whole girl” and provide the academic and developmental support needed for each girl to succeed.

Hawthorn provides a college preparatory curriculum with a special emphasis on science, technology, engineering and math (“STEM”).  Access to and training in modern technology encourages girls to approach STEM subjects with energy, confidence and enthusiasm.

Rising Up Ceremony 2017 At Hawthorn, our faculty and staff of Hawthorn sets high expectations inside and outside the classroom and provides the academic and developmental support to reach those expectations. A Rising Up Ceremony has become an end-of 8th grade tradition.  Here are highlights of our 2017 Rising Up Ceremony, celebrating the achievements of our graduating class.

We encourage community friends, prospective students and families to visit us! Throughout the year, our students lead tours twice a month during the school day which is a great way to see school in action. During student recruitment season, prospective families can attend our Saturday Open Houses. We also offer Family Tours the first Tuesday of every month during the spring.
