Core Competencies

Columbus School for Girls has been educating girls for over 120 years. 

Our passionate teachers know how to best educate girls and young women. Crafting academically rigorous curricula that reflect the latest research in cognitive science, classroom practice, and learning theory, CSG faculty are experts in their respective disciplines. They provide engaging learning experiences that ensure each girl reaches her full potential as a learner and as a leader.

CSG provides a cohesive, developmentally appropriate curriculum that takes into account the needs of each division (Program for Young Children and Lower-, Middle-, and Upper Schools) while providing a sequence of skills and instilling academic habits of mind that spiral through the School.
