About Us

Bryn Mawr Online is a full-time, diploma-awarding online high school program
enrolling rising 9th and 10th graders for the 2023-24 academic year.
Bryn Mawr Online is fully accredited by AIMS and WASC, NCAA approved, and offers Advanced Placement (AP) courses approved by the College Board.
Founded in 1885, as the first college-preparatory school for girls in the United States, The Bryn Mawr School is known as one of the premier academic institutions in the country.

Our students live deliberate, considered and consequential lives, with the resourcefulness and self-awareness to make choices for themselves. They know where they want to go and how to create the lives they want to live. They are well-prepared, creative thinkers. They are confident and resilient. They are dynamic, joyful, energetic, powerful and smart women who care for the world. 

Quite simply, the Bryn Mawr experience changes girls’ lives. 
That's why we launched Bryn Mawr Online in 2022.  Until then, the Bryn Mawr academic experience had only been available to students in the vicinity of our campus in Baltimore, Maryland. Yet, we always believed, like our founders, that young women across the country would benefit tremendously from a Bryn Mawr education. Through the innovative use of technology, a re-imagined curriculum, a commitment to student support, and our outstanding faculty, our nationally-ranked program is available to students no matter where they are.

Our Mission

The Bryn Mawr School inspires a passion for intellectual curiosity, emphasizes the delights and demands of learning, and nurtures the full potential of our young women in mind, body, and spirit. To prepare our students for lifelong learning and leadership, we are deeply committed to academic excellence, ethical decision-making, and the dignity of all people. A Bryn Mawr education is grounded in the expectation that young women will be resilient in the face of complexity, ambiguity, and change; will become responsible and confident participants in the world; and will lead considered and consequential lives.

Our Commitment to Diversity

The Bryn Mawr School is deeply committed to growing as a diverse, equitable, and inclusive learning community. We are dedicated to providing an education that is rooted in the ideals of equity and justice and that reflects the diverse identities, experiences, and voices of our constituents. By honoring and nurturing the unique differences within our school community, we teach our students to better understand and contribute to the wider world. To prepare our students and ourselves to lead considered and consequential lives, we believe it is essential that we develop the ability to identify, question, and challenge bias and acts of discrimination. As we strive to build a community that celebrates and values each individual, Bryn Mawr will engage in an ongoing review of our policies and practices that address bias and discrimination.
