The high school prepares girls for college, and has always been accredited to the University of California and Stanford University as well as other colleges that accredit preparatory schools.

Both day and boarding pupils are accepted. The faculty is large and fully covers all the courses offered. The student activities are conducted by the different classes under the supervision of the teachers, with every attention to proper instruction in handling such affairs.
