Our sisters' school

Our Mission, as an independent, tuition-free, non-sectarian middle school, is to educate and inspire economically disadvantaged girls from the New Bedford area. Our Sisters' School empowers girls to step into the future with valuable life skills and a mindset of achievement and excellence by providing a safe, supportive, and academically challenging environment.

As a tuition-free independent middle school for economically disadvantaged girls, it is central to our purpose to provide a strong academic foundation. Yet that is just a starting point for us. Our true purpose is to equip our students with the foundation they need to pursue higher educations, achieve their dreams and help build their communities! For that, we know, they also need healthy self-esteem, unfettered aspiration, and resilient determination. This is our work.

For more information or application materials, please call the school at 508-994-1255 or email info@oursistersschool.org.

Full Scholarships are available for qualified students whose families quality for public fuel assistance programming.
