Marlborough School - An independent day school for girls grades 7-12

Student Life

Working together, having fun, developing leadership skills, building friendships, trying new things, facing challenges…all part of the active day of a Marlborough student.

Marlborough's athletic, artistic, civic, and extracurricular programs engage students with opportunities to develop the critical thinking and leadership skills engendered by their studies. As part of a vibrant, multi-faceted community, girls can explore, take risks, and define themselves as confident individuals.


Whether her interests are in Harry Potter, the environment, multiculturalism, kniting, human rights, ultimate frisbee, or all of the above, a Marlborough girl can always find collaborators.


Girls develop teamwork, leadership skills, and personal vision through meaningful student government.


In addition to an intensive curricular emphasis on writing skills, Marlborough offers students opportunities to hone their skills at writing, researching, editing, and design through two campus newspapers, a yearbook, and a creative writing anthology.


Students practice altruism and engagement through voluntary involvement with a variety of groups and causes. With a busy calendar of events, our Community Outreach office coordinates activities that encourage girls to see beyond themselves.
