At CSG we empower girls to discover their distinct potential as learners and leaders.

We are so glad you're here. 

Columbus School for Girls (CSG), an independent day school founded in 1898 in Columbus, Ohio, serves diverse students in grades PreK-12.

A leader in the education of girls and young women, CSG is a vibrant community of 500 students supported by 114 faculty and staff members and 2,500 active alumnae. CSG’s eight-acre academic campus in the beautiful Bexley neighborhood is a 10-minute drive from downtown Columbus, a city bustling with artistic, civic, and shopping experiences. Having just completed a strategic plan to guide the School’s direction over the next several years, CSG offers an exceptional, student-centered academic experience with strong offerings in the arts, an impressive athletic program, and a health and wellness curriculum that is unique in central Ohio. This combination of academics and skills ensures that CSG students will be well prepared for life beyond CSG.

At CSG, we make decisions by putting our students and our school first. We do that with a love for teaching and learning that is grounded in trust, excellence, and persistence. We believe that this approach is fundamental to an empowering learning environment where we keep individuals in mind and our community at heart.
