The Archer School For Girls Saban IDEAlab held a ribbon cutting ceremony on the school’s historic campus in Brentwood this week.
The new facility was made possible by generous contributions from the Cheryl Saban Self Worth Foundation for Women and Girls, the Edward E. Ford Foundation, and Archer supporter Roberta Weintraub.
The Engineering Classroom and Design Workshop will serve as the physical hub of Archer’s Integrated Design and Engineering Arts program, and the Saban IDEAlab will further Archer’s commitment to addressing the persistent lack of women in engineering and computer science.
Founded in 1995, The Archer School for Girls is an independent school that provides a 21st-century college preparatory program for students in grades 6 through 12 in an environment that explores and refines the ways girls learn best. Cultivating a strong sense of individuality, personal identity, independence, a sense of global engagement and an array of leadership opportunities define each student’s experience.
