Agnes Irwin School
Ithan Ave & Conestoga Rd, Rosemont, PA 19010
The school was founded by Agnes Irwin, who in 1894 was appointed first dean of Radcliffe College. Formerly in Wynnewood, the school in 1961 consolidated on an 18-acre campus in Rosemont, a half mile from Villanova University. Agnes Irwin's curriculum incorporates computer education at every grade level, and mobile laptop carts are employed in place of computer labs in the lower, middle and upper schools. In the upper school years, girls choose from honors and Advanced Placement offerings in all major disciplines. The visual, musical and dramatic arts are a important part of the curriculum. Girls satisfy a 40-hour cumulative community service requirement prior to graduation. Physical education begins in the lower school, followed by the introduction of team sports and fitness instruction in the middle and upper schools. In the school's Special Studies Program, sophomores and juniors spend two weeks pursuing school-sponsored or self-designed academic study, internships, language immersion or service learning programs outside of class.
