Learning to Lead

At Crofton House, every girl learns to be a leader Crofton House girls have many opportunities to learn to lead. Beginning in the early grades, students start to see how they can have a positive impact through hands-on learning in classrooms, in nature and in the community. As they progress through the grades, older girls are supported to take on formal leadership roles and develop cross-grade relationships that develop responsibility and showcase leadership for younger students. 

Girls are immersed in a culture that models our values of courage, creativity and citizenship so they are able to apply the skills of a leader – critical thinking, problem-solving, communication, collaboration and conflict resolution – during their time at Crofton House and beyond.
