The four sides of the classroom cannot give all the developmental needs of the students. Engagement to other activities, clubs, or organizations is a great help for them. One of the extra-curricular activities to which girl students can have the membership is girl scouting. Girl Scouting aids girls develop their full individual potential; relate to others with increasing understanding, skill, and respect; develop values to guide their actions and provide the foundation for sound decision making; and contribute to the improvement of society through their abilities, leadership skills, and cooperation with others. This paper assessed the status of senior high school girl scouting in the province of Batangas, with different schools as the main source of respondents. Also, this study measured how girl scouting affects the holistic personality development of the GSP members as to physical, emotional, psychosocial, spiritual, and mental development. A self-made questionnaire was utilized to gather the data necessary for this study. For validation of the gathered information, focus group discussion and interview were also employed. Further, the study found out that the status of Girl Scout Program was moderately evident. Also, the study suggested that emotional, psychosocial, mental, and spiritual had a very evident effect to the holistic personality development of the respondents, while physical showed a moderate effect. There was a significant difference between the assessments of school administrators and coordinators in the implementation of Girl Scouting Program along all components.
