At the Calgary Girls Charter School, we believe our students can be anything. We recognize that a girls’ only learning environment provides educational opportunities that are unique and rich. Our stimulating and supportive learning environment, focuses student development on leadership, responsible citizenship and integrity. Through the approved curriculum, competencies for life are developed to enable students to be responsible participants in their personal lives, their communities and society as a whole. At CGCS we utilize research-based practices that best support girls’-only learning. As a result, our students are noted for their confidence, intellect, imagination, compassion, leadership and high aspirations.

CGCS prepares students to:

  • Think critically and creatively
  • Make thoughtful decisions and solve problems
  • Facilitate and navigate change
  • Innovate and persist
  • Cultivate curiosity and respect

CGCS students receive education which allows them to thrive by:

  • Celebrating their strong identity
  • Respecting them as the central players in their lives
  • Connecting them with caring adults
  • Ensuring their participation and success
  • Empowering them to actualize their goals
