Everyone at Walker’s is guided by the principle and pursuit of integrity. Walker’s students have strong moral principles and stand up for what is right.


Walker’s women see each other as collaborators, not competitors. Students respect peers and faculty in an environment where immediate acceptance emboldens students to be actively engaged in all aspects of campus life.


At Walker’s, girls forge their own paths. Graduates of all-girls’ schools are more likely than peers from coed schools to speak up and pursue their passions with confidence.


Experiences and challenges that motivate girls to achieve their best happen in all aspects of school life. At Walker’s, girls have the courage to take risks and try new things.


Walker’s students are confident in their beliefs, and bring a crucial voice to community dialogue. Our students are committed to social change and make transformative impact.

Love of Learning

Walker’s academic environment boasts exceptional faculty who are united in their dedication to making rigorous inquiry an enjoyable, lively process.
