“Trafalgar created an environment where it was fiercely encouraged to be strong, independent, ambitious, smart and well-rounded.” Grace B., Class of '08

Every day at Trafalgar Castle School, our students enjoy a full life outside the classroom. In an all-girls' environment, every opportunity is available to learn about leadership, team play, artistic expression and community action. And of course, the girls relax, have fun and get creative while they try new things and explore who they are.

More than anything, our School Life program is designed to help every girl know and value herself in a meaningful way. We recognize that self-respect lies at the heart of true confidence. Through all of the activities and opportunities available, Trafalgar girls learn they are capable and use their voices to shape the world.

With clubs that range from archery to chamber orchestra, drama, robotics, yearbook and much more, every girl finds a special place to share her passion and join in the spirit of teamwork. We have many long-standing clubs, while others evolve as the world changes. Environmental stewardship, social justice issues or debating might be her calling. And if there isn’t a club for what’s in her heart, she can start one.

Trafalgar girls can also choose from a great variety of exciting physical activities. Within the school, she might sign up for intramural teams or join a fitness program. If she wants to compete outside the school, she could join field hockey, basketball, soccer or any number of other sports teams. Trafalgar Castle is a member of the Conference of Independent School Athletics Association (CISAA), and so our girls compete with pride against teams from other independent schools.


As far back as 1878, we have records of our students volunteering in what used to be called soup kitchens. A sense of service and a commitment to building a better world is woven into the fabric of Trafalgar Castle. Whether collecting goods for a women’s shelter, joining a Habitat for Humanity build or tutoring a younger student in math, our girls are active and responsible citizens who reach out to others in the community.

Socially conscious and globally aware, Trafalgar students feel a duty to make positive change – and do so with both compassion and a sense of the practical challenges leaders face in a complex society. From our point of view, extending beyond the self toward the wider world is an essential part of every girl’s education.
