Our Core Values

Mission Statement

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

Since 1898, we've worked to carry out our mission 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 in which we keep individuals in mind and our community at heart.
