Description

Garrison Forest School is a private, independent girls’ school in Baltimore County, Maryland with an elementary, middle and high school program, coed preschool and national and international boarding program.

Unique Characteristics

WISE – The Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) program is a groundbreaking partnership between Garrison Forest and Johns Hopkins University. We place talented GFS students in Hopkins labs two afternoons a week for about 15 weeks of a semester. WISE students are carefully matched with a Hopkins mentor (professor or graduate student) for a semester and participate fully in the research focus of a Hopkins lab.

Equestrian Institute – The Garrison Forest Equestrian Institute is designed to give competitive riders the opportunity to advance their skills, expand their horsemanship knowledge and compete at a high level while enjoying the benefits and camaraderie of riding in a school program. Participation in the Equestrian Institute will combine an in-depth equestrian program with a full Garrison Forest academic curriculum uniquely customized for top riders. Students in grades 6-12 are eligible for this rigorous and personalized program that prepares girls to rise to the academic and athletic challenge of being student-riders at Garrison Forest and in college.
