The 2021-2022 school year marked the 50th anniversary of Severn becoming coeducational. The decision to admit girls marked not only a historic departure from tradition but a commitment to intentional growth and change for the better. That first group of 57 girls, admitted in the fall of 1971, opened the door for so many to follow and fundamentally changed the course of Severn's future. Today, Severn is one of the top independent schools in our area, with a forward-thinking curriculum and students who care about making a difference in our community and the world beyond Water Street. That success wouldn't be possible without the generations of girls and women whose voices have made Severn School what it is today.
