On Tuesday, September 6, 2016, The Academy at Penguin Hall celebrated our blessing and dedication of the opening of school. More than 60 students and over 150 families, local leaders and state officials were here to celebrate the opening of the only all-girls college preparatory high school on the North Shore. The day began with our Welcoming Ceremony. In this ceremony, all faculty and administration staff members lined up to shake hands with every student; we officially welcomed them as members of our community.
Today I saw what experts and researchers have written about with regard to single-sex education -- it's different and the difference is palpable.
Our teaching staff has arrived at The Academy at Penguin Hall and the sound of spirited discussions around how best prepare our young women for college and beyond has filled the halls.
