Join us to learn more about WSG's Scholars Circle sponsorship program on October 14th at 3:00pm ET. The information will share more details about the program and information about how Scholars Circle members will be able to connect with students in the coming school year.
We believe that students of all backgrounds deserve to be challenged, supported, and inspired in school; but educational equity is not yet a reality for Black and Brown girls. That is why we formed as an all-scholarship school located in Southeast Washington, D.C nearly 25 years ago.
The Scholars Circle is a special program that invites philanthropists who are passionate about educational equity to make a direct investment in students at WSG by sponsoring an incoming 3rd grade class for three years. Scholars Circle members provide multi-year scholarship support and will come to know the vibrant personalities of all students in the class they are supporting and have a unique opportunity to share in their life at WSG and their joyful pursuit of learning.
Our Girls, Our World

Continuing our webinar series from last school year, Dr. Reaves and special guests will discuss current research on topics that impact Black and Brown girls in school and in their communities, such as Adultification Bias (where Black girls are perceived as older than they are and held to age-inappropriate standards) and the disproportionate impact of disciplinary policies in many schools. Drawing on the research and expertise from the Georgetown Law Center on Poverty and Inequality and the various works of Monique Morris, Ed.D, Dr. Reaves and her panelists will discuss the implications for educators and shine a light on how this broader research informs our work at WSG.
While WSG is not able to host visitors during our regular school day due to capacity limitations and COVID-19 health protocols, we are opening our doors for campus tours with the WSG Development staff. We kindly ask that all guests wear a mask regardless of vaccination status. The tour will include a general overview of WSG’s programs (perfect for those new to WSG) as well as updates on how we have adapted our in-person programming in light of the ongoing pandemic.
