Founded in 1869 by Miss Agnes Irwin, the first Dean of Radcliffe College and the great-great-granddaughter of Benjamin Franklin, The Agnes Irwin School was one of the first schools in the United States devoted to the education of girls and young women. As a Headmistress at the age of just twenty-eight, Miss Agnes Irwin would create an institution that emphasized "disciplined and precise thinking," where girls could flourish in a classical curriculum that included a range of study in English, Modern and Classical Languages, History, Mathematics and Science.
