  • Celebrating Women's History Month

    Head of School Blog, by Jacqueline L. Landry

    I, like many of you, may feel that a month designated to celebrate or commemorate a particular group is not enough.  What about the rest of the year?  Does having a dedicated month set aside instead work against us, trivializing the very group we are advocating for? Being controversial as it may, as leaders and educators of all an all-female institution, we will continue to take full advantage of celebrating the vast array of women’s achievements this month, and for the year ahead.

    The Foodie Revolution

    Head of School Jacqueline L. Landry

    If you were to ask our current students how many of them are interested in the ‘foodie’ culture or watch cooking shows on television, the number of young women who would raise their hands could astound you. With the rise of the culinary explosion has come an influx of new cooking shows, an obsession over novel foods, and the omnipresent multitude of books, magazines and blogs dedicated solely to the art of cooking.
