Westover provides a cooperative, community environment where young women have freedom to grow, to truly be themselves and to keep their priorities focused on what they think, rather than what they wear. They enjoy speaking up rather than dumbing down. They feel free to make mistakes and to try new things rather than to stick to sure things. Westover girls feel comfortable leading rather than following.
This special freedom enables young women to experience an exceptionally enriching evolution of self, and to develop greater self-actualization, self-motivation, self-reliance, and self-confidence - without the usual self-consciousness.
Westover Girls graduate and go on to attend colleges and universities where they acclimate easily precisely because of the solid sense of self and self-worth they gained here. They're better equipped to make decisions for themselves and their future, and to develop meaningful connections with teachers, peers, and the greater community.
