In 2007–2008, Bryn Mawr has 117 faculty members, 61% of whom hold advanced degrees. Student enrollment is currently 784 and the student to faculty ratio is 7:1. The average class size is 15. Boys are admitted only into the Pre-K division known as the Little School; however, students from Bryn Mawr's brother school may take classes once in Upper School.

Advisory groups meet together throughout the week for discussions and celebrations, and work together on a variety of charitable and service projects.
