Girl Scout Academy

Today's girl is ready to conquer the world - and we're here to show her how to champion her passions and pursue her dreams.

Girl Scout Academy (GSA) is a newly launched enrichment program offered by Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas that compliments the academic curriculum provided by the school. GSA is a flexible, customizable curriculum that allows schools to adapt Girl Scouts to meet the needs of their students. In addition, GSA creates space within the school day that ensures girls are receiving the overall character development benefits of Girl Scouts like enhancing their social and emotional skills, developing confidence, resiliency, and leadership skills.

For Educators

More learning. More outcomes. 
Girl Scouts complements the great work you do at school every day. Our programming introduces and opens girls up to so many things—like science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM); entrepreneurship; life skills; financial literacy; and outdoor experiences—that are vital for a successful future and that enable girls to build social and emotional skills; exemplify anti-bullying behavior; and develop confidence, resiliency, and leadership skills. Together, we can help your school achieve incredible outcomes as we unleash the power of G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ that lives inside every girl who walks your halls.
