Our Mission

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


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.

Columbus School for Girls offers a competitive salary, benefits, and professional opportunities. CSG celebrates diversity and is committed to becoming a more equitable and inclusive community where all members feel safe, connected, and respected. We define diversity broadly, considering each member’s race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, socio-economic status, physical ability, and learning profile, as crucial components of that diversity.
