Mission Statement

 

Our mission is simple: cultivate girls to be the most well-rounded women of the 21st century. Lady Blossoms Finishing School for Girls is the paradigm where yesterday’s values and standards meet modern day education and technology. We don’t choose one over the other; we gracefully integrate both.

Not Your Grandma's Charm School

Welcome to Lady Blossoms Finishing School for Girls! We are excited to offer a dynamic and interactive experience for girls ages 8-18 years old. Our innovative curriculum is designed to keep students engaged and motivated, with a combination of online classes twice a week and daily fun interactive activities and assignments. 

We have selected the most important courses, subjects, and topics in civility, personal development, and college preparatory to ensure that our students receive a progressive and well rounded education in life preparedness. Our curriculum includes a focus on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) to help our students stay engaged with the rapid pace of technological innovation and development.

Throughout the school year, we offer a variety of annual events, special assignments, and summer experiences to keep our students immersed and learning. We also invite special guest speakers students would are excited about to classes to provide additional insights and perspectives. 

Our school schedule runs September through May, coinciding with the traditional school year. We offer three levels of curriculum - lower school, middle school and upper school - and tailor our curriculum to each student based on her needs and goals at enrollment. Each student will be assigned a therapist they work with throughout the year. In our best efforts, we are able to accommodate students with some special needs, such as twice exceptional learners. 

While students will benefit from starting at any level, our curriculum is a progressive learning curriculum and students who attend all three schools receive the most benefit. Only students who complete at least two years of our curriculum may graduate from Lady Blossoms. There is opportunity for students entering in the Upper School to graduate. Apply, and FrontDesk@LadyBlossoms will contact you to discuss your options.  

In addition to our core curriculum, we offer a variety of electives and intensive programs for specialty subjects throughout the school year. There are student clubs and activities for our girls to explore their shared interests and connect with each other. We organize regional meet-ups for students to meet in person both inside and outside of school. 

At Lady Blossoms, we are committed to providing a supportive and empowering learning environment for girls. We hope you will join us on this exciting journey!

Why choose Lady Blossoms?

Empowering girls to be their full potential

It's important as ever for us to listen, foster, and amplify the voices of girls and young women - and encourage them to assert their voices so that they can be counted. We begin this by fostering mindful conversations and character building behaviors. The heart of Lady Blossoms is the seed of citizenship. Through our character-focused studies, students serve as change agents within the school, as well as in the greater community.
