We develop leadership, foster community and sisterhood.
Beyond the classroom, we want Ann Richards School students to become lifelong leaders. That’s why we encourage our girls to participate in everything from sports and fine arts to afterschool programs and leadership groups. We know these activities develop well-rounded leaders and foster a sense of community and camaraderie.

ARS students are getting in the game! We offer six sports: volleyball, soccer, track and field, cross country, tennis and basketball so that our girls form exercise habits—and take part in competition, too.
From band and choir to art and theatre, our students have many channels to express their creativity.
Service is in our DNA at the Ann Richards School, and because of this, we encourage our students to get involved in our community any way they can.
