While there are many ways that a St. Catherine’s education goes far beyond the fundamentals, our Girls Innovate Program provides transformational experiences intentionally designed for girls in five distinct areas:
In honor of St. Catherine's 125th Anniversary and in celebration of the United Nations International Day of the Girl, we hosted Girls Innovate, a special event for more than 1,000 girls from across the Richmond region. The high-energy day featured women who shared their stories about how they are changing the world and inspired students to dream big. Girls explored and collaborated on design challenge with support from mentors littleBits, Capital One, CapTech and WestRock.
That day sparked a new movement – a commitment to design curricular innovations for the evolving needs of our students across all grade levels, all divisions and all subjects. A committee of faculty and staff conducted research and created a framework of ways to provide transformational experiences for girls. In the fall of 2018, the Girls Innovate Faculty Fellows Program launched to advance academic programs, expand student opportunities and drive enhanced approaches to teaching and learning.
