Preparing Students For Life - Legacy Advisors

Girard College is a boarding school for academically capable students in grades 1 through 12 from families with limited financial resources, each headed by a single parent or guardian. All students receive full scholarships to take part in the school’s strong academic program and to live safely on its enclosed 43-acre campus in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Girard’s mission is to prepare students for advanced education and life as informed, ethical and productive citizens through a rigorous educational program that promotes intellectual, social and emotional growth. The Legacy Foundation grant provided funds towards their Aerobic Fitness Class and their Fitness Action Pack program, which included pedometers, yoga mats and resistance bands. These programs reinforce healthy lifestyles and benefit the entire student body. For more information, visit their website at
