Having read all of the reviews on this site, I am quite appalled by many of the comments. Most of the comments are from recent graduates who may not actually be able enough to see the benefits that PEG can offer to their career. Going to PEG was one the best decisions I have ever made and it is a decision that I encourage everyone that is given the opportunity to consider.

I seriously forewarn those considering sending their daughters to PEG. I entered as a fourteen year old freshman in 1998, and I'm currently a law student. I have serious doubts that the program is working steadfastly and in the proper manner to educate bright young women. PEG is too huge a life change to be taken lightly, however, this seems to be the norm.

This program allows gifted girls to live with other young women and to pursue early entrance college.
