The world beyond high school is the chapter of life that you get to create for yourself. It’s a wide-open landscape where you can learn and grow in the fields that you are passionate about. Sweet Briar is a great place to begin that journey.

We prepare young women to excel in the modern world. We’ve been doing it since 1901. And you are our sole focus. At Sweet Briar, women get all the attention, all the student leadership roles, and any career choice is open to you. We think that makes Sweet Briar pretty special.

We want you to set high standards and we’ll provide the enthusiasm to help you meet and exceed them. Here, you’ll find an atmosphere of collaboration, communication, personal attention and great celebration.

The College is on 3,250 acres that provide a landscape for learning.

Our curriculum spans more than 40 areas of study that embrace your academic interests and encourage the discovery of new ones. Sweet Briar professors and staff dedicate themselves to your learning, in class and long after the semester ends. Athletics, activities, clubs and events integrate tradition, service and innovation into the college experience.

At Sweet Briar’s core stands a student community that’s broadly diverse, tightly knit and wholly unique. And you graduate into a network of Sweet Briar alumnae — thousands of successful women ready to share information and provide guidance.

During your college search, I hope to see you on campus and hear your questions firsthand. Like everyone at Sweet Briar, I’m ready to help you discover the answers.
