Since its inception, The Archer School for Girls has embarked on a distinctive path: To provide the City of Los Angeles with a contemporary girls' school designed according to the most current research on how girls learn best – a girls school for the 21st century.
In August 2015, after four years of a rigorous and comprehensive public engagement and review process, the Los Angeles City Council unanimously approved The Archer School for Girls’ Campus Preservation and Improvement Plan – the foundation for the future of Archer. We are pleased that the Brentwood Homeowners Association and the Residential Neighbors of Archer supported the compromise plan, which addresses community priorities and sets a new standard for how independent schools can live in harmony with neighbors.
Last December, Archer broke ground on the construction of the new Academic Center. The facility, complete with over 30 state-of-the-art classrooms, a kitchen, and a student center, is slated to open in 2019. See a preview and updates.

In a milestone decision for Archer Forward, the Los Angeles City Planning Commission unanimously approved the plan on April 23, 2015. The vote was an important step in the City's approval process, and it paved the way for the Archer Forward plan to deliver on our educational mission while respecting the Brentwood neighborhood we call home.
