Bryn Mawr Where You Are

Our full time, diploma-awarding program offers students the flexibility and convenience to experience Bryn Mawr’s challenging curriculum and inspiring program no matter where they live.

Personalized Success

Each student is paired with a Student Success Coach to make sure she is thriving and getting the support she needs to achieve her highest potential.

Here, it's Cool to be Smart

Research shows that all-girls learning environments create a culture of achievement and that girls educated in a single-sex environment have stronger academic skills, are more academically engaged and higher levels of self-confidence over their coed peers. Bryn Mawr faculty raise the bar and help girls achieve more than they ever thought possible!

Extraordinary Lives

As the only all-girls online high school program in the country, we are driven by our mission to prepare young women for lifelong learning and leadership. Bryn Mawr alumnae go on to attend the finest colleges and universities and live lives of consequence and impact, bonded for life with their classmates and the Bryn Mawr network.

Shape the Future

In our pilot year, Bryn Mawr Online students have the opportunity to help shape the future of the program and can lock in guaranteed tuition pricing for their high school years.

The All-Girl Advantage

Why choose an all-girls school? Because we know that single-sex schools helps girls thrive. Girls’ schools are more relevant today than ever before. Research by the National Coalition of Girls' Schools shows that:


Girls’ school grads report higher self-confidence over their coed peers.


Graduates of girls’ schools are six times more likely to consider majoring in math, science, and technology and three times more likely to consider engineering compared to girls who attended coed schools.


Nearly 87% of girls’ school students feel their voices – their opinions – are respected compared to 58% of girls at coed schools.

For the 2021-22 school year, Bryn Mawr Online will be accepting 15 students as part of its inaugural cohort. Since our founding in 1885, Bryn Mawr has been committed to supporting every girl that enrolls throughout their high school years, and we are fully committed to keeping your daughter through her graduation at the Bryn Mawr Online School. To provide as much flexibility as possible, we are offering three tuition options for families. 

Early Adopters Tuition Program

Although The Bryn Mawr School has a history of delivering excellent online instruction, we realize that families are committing to a new iteration of The Bryn Mawr School for their child. Because of this reality, we are offering an Early Adopter Tuition Program that has reduced tuition for the inaugural year of the school's operation and guarantees yearly tuition increases of no more than 4% over the next four years. This program is only available in year one of the school, and tuition prices will rise to normal tuition rates the following year for new families.

Enrollment Status Tuition
Full-Time (5 or more courses) $20,500
Part-Time ( 2-3 courses) $15,000
Part-Time ( 1 course) Please contact us at admissions-online@brynmawrschool.org to further discuss your needs.

Learning Communities

We aim to create a network of learning communities across the country that empower girls to not only learn in our academically challenging program but develop their voice and confidence through personalized leadership opportunities. Our online learning communities will have a symbiotic relationship with our Baltimore, MD campus through shared community gatherings, service opportunities, exchange programs, intellectual discussions, and more. The shared Bryn Mawr student experience will lead to a dynamic learning environment where students will emerge as future leaders.  
If your learning community is interested in joining our school please contact us at admissions-online@brynmawrschool.org to further discuss how we work together. In an effort to jumpstart our learning communities, we are offering special tuition pricing for learning communities that enroll three or more students in our program.   

Tuition Guarantee Program - Founding Family

We are committed to your child’s success throughout their Upper School online experience and for families who wish to commit to Bryn Mawr Online for the entire experience now, we offer special tuition rates.
