Student Life

Sing Girls, Sing

The research shows: girls’ confidence grows when they are surrounded by people who know and value who they are.

Where routines and rituals are designed to elevate their well-being. We sleep free of electronics to promote healthy rest. Day or boarding student, we have a room to call our own. We count on advisors and mentors day and night. We encourage each other to ask questions, lead, serve, take up space, and make the world better — to be our true selves. Because our selves are what make Foxcroft, Foxcroft.


In this community, there never seems to be a dull moment — our bonds are unbreakable. You are guaranteed to graduate here with lifelong friends, core memories, and life lessons. I wouldn’t change a thing. — Marley F.Class of 2024

Leading to Serve

Foxcroft leaders work hard and play hard. Leadership at Foxcroft is an honor, a responsibility, and a skill. No matter the role — whether formal or informal — each student is intentionally stretched to develop as a leader. Through advising and mentoring, students will learn to identify their strengths, learn from their mistakes, and make the effort to share their talents and interests with the community.

Attending Foxcroft means you spend up to four years of your teenage life growing up away from home. But when you leave, you look back and realize you have created a family, identified your support system, found a deeper sense of self, and discovered new passions that you help you accomplish your dreams! — Alexis HallClass of 2012
