Why Madeira?

Inspiring teachers. Motivated students. Personalized academic schedules to suit your interests and give you individual challenges. Real-world work experience – that’s what you get at Madeira.

A Madeira student may arrive unsure of her interests and goals, but she graduates confident in her abilities and her plans for the future – part of a legacy of bright, passionate women.

To be a Madeira girl means you’ll always be welcomed, encouraged, and accepted. Madeira is a place for study, for play, and for growth. It is a starting point for journeys of the mind that are, at the same time, journeys into the world.
