A new research study provides further evidence that an all-girls environment well prepares female students for success at the university level. The study is entitled Fostering Academic and Social Engagement: An Investigation into the Effects of All-Girls Education in the Transition to University (2018) and was conducted by Tiffani Riggers-Piehl, Ph.D., Principal Investigator with Gloria Lim, Ph.D. and Karen King.
The study compares graduates of all-girls schools to female graduates of coed schools in terms of their academic characteristics and readiness for university. The findings are extensive and the study concluded that, when compared to their female peers at coed schools, girls' school graduates:
Have stronger academic skills
Are more academically engaged
Demonstrate higher science self-confidence
Display higher levels of cultural competency
Express stronger community involvement
Exhibit increased political engagement
