Sisterhood for Life

At the heart of the Washington School for Girls lies a powerful force that isn’t limited by time or location.


It is a unique blend of support, friendship, and shared aspirations that grows stronger each day. We know the bonds cultivated during our girls’ time here are enduring relationships that follow them long after they leave our school.

From the first day a girl walks through our doors, she is welcomed into a sisterhood that celebrates diversity, supports individual growth, and embraces each other’s unique strengths. Together, our girls navigate the challenges of academics, celebrate victories, and support one another through life’s twists and turns.

Chyna Beale, a WSG 2019 graduate, recently shared her love for the WSG sisterhood and her sisters. She fondly recalled the friendships she cultivated during her time at WSG as the pillars of her support system. These connections not only enriched her academic experience but also provided a nurturing space where she felt empowered to explore her potential. And it is these same bonds that hold her up as she is navigating her freshman semester at Spelman College in Atlanta, GA. 

Alumnae like Chyna carry the torch of sisterhood, lighting the way for future generations of WSG students.

 In a message to future students, Chyna advised, “Do not take the WSG sisterhood for granted. School can be hard. Life can be hard. But it’s your sisters that will help you through.”

Even as our graduates spread their wings and embark upon diverse paths, the spirit of sisterhood they cultivated at WSG stays with them. Whether they’re pursuing higher education, like Chyna, entering the workforce, or making a difference in their communities, the WSG sisterhood is the light that guides them, reminding them of their strength and network of unwavering support.

The Washington School for Girls takes pride in the fact that our girls leave WSG not only with academic achievements but they carry with them a powerful legacy of forever sisters who continue to uplift, inspire, and empower each other. The knowledge gained within the walls of WSG goes beyond the classroom, shaping resilient, compassionate, and confident young ladies who make a positive impact on their communities. 

With the support of our community, we will continue to nurture future leaders, scholars, and compassionate individuals and celebrate the sisterhood that helps define the Washington School for Girls. Together, we can create a legacy of empowered young women who carry the warmth of our school’s spirit wherever they go.

As we prepare to ring in the new year, here’s to sisterhood and the Washington School for Girls – where bonds are forged, memories are made, and the spirit of unity lasts a lifetime.
