Girard College is a boarding school for academically capable students, grades 1 through 12, from families with limited financial resources, each headed by a single parent or guardian.

All Girard students receive full scholarships to take part in the school's strong academic program, and to live safely on its enclosed 43-acre campus in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Girard's mission is to prepare students for advanced education and life as informed, ethical and productive citizens through a rigorous educational program that promotes intellectual, social and emotional growth.
