Columbus School for Girls has been educating girls for over 100 years. Our passionate teachers know how to best educate girls and young women. Crafting an academically rigorous curriculum that reflects 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 citizen. Also with an average student-teacher ratio of 8:1, our faculty are able to personalize the learning experience for each student. 

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