The Ellis School is located in the Shadyside neighborhood of Pittsburgh.

Surrounded by six different neighborhoods, the Ellis campus is just a short walk away from museums, parks, restaurants, and retail shops. With plenty of family-friendly activities, places, and events in the vicinity, there is always something for Ellis girls and their families to do.
In addition to our vibrant, urban location, Ellis is located at the heart of a growing innovation zone in Pittsburgh. The School’s proximity to Pittsburgh technology hubs like Google, Uber, and Carnegie Mellon University provides students with firsthand experiences and opportunities that supplement and enhance their studies.
