Join us for a student-led tour of the Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders!

Since 2007, ARS has embodied its namesake’s lifelong passion for advancing education, empowering young women, and creating opportunities for girls who may otherwise be held back from achieving their full potential. In January 2021, the Ann Richards School moved into their new home, a state-of-the-art facility with 21st-century learning spaces to align with the school’s innovative teaching practices.

We look forward to meeting you and showing you around our campus!
