The Impact of Giving

Over a century ago, Mary Lockey founded Castilleja to increase equity in education, creating a school to prepare girls to succeed in college in an era when such opportunities were rare. We have come a long way since 1907; more young women are enrolling  in colleges and universities throughout the world than ever before, but there is still work that needs to be done to assure that they have equal access to opportunities throughout their lifetimes.

Today, Castilleja is preparing girls to be confident thinkers and compassionate leaders through an innovative and interdisciplinary curriculum that is grounded in real-world questions. Guided by talented and committed faculty, Castilleja students are inspired to become lifelong learners with a sense of purpose. Since the first days in the school’s history, Castilleja has relied on the generosity of our community to offer this transformative student experience.
