All-Girls High School
St. Mary’s Academy High School excels at preparing young women for leadership in a global society. Our goal is to empower our students through the development of analytical skills, confidence, and generosity to make a difference in the world around them.
As a rigorous college-preparatory school, our seminar-style classes encourage inquiry, debate, and cooperative learning. Our unique Block System schedule consists of four ninety-minute class periods. This proven approach to learning fully engages and focuses your daughter while allowing her to enjoy a fresh slate of classes come January.
Walking through the halls of the high school, you will immediately notice a dramatically different atmosphere – one where girls take center stage: Our students are challenged by their peers to achieve more; they feel more comfortable being themselves and expressing their ideas; and they show greater gains on core academic and life skills.
Our High School students typically push themselves beyond expectations—enrolling in several Advanced Placement classes and taking more than the required number of course credits.
Determination and drive are what lead our students to be accepted into prestigious colleges, and awarded merit scholarships.
When girls graduate from St. Mary’s Academy, they leave academically and personally equipped to pursue collegiate and post-collegiate study, and any career path they choose. Here are some of the colleges our graduates are attending.
Leadership opportunities abound at St. Mary’s Academy High School with options for students to serve as elected officers, scholar-athletes, literary magazine editors, and participants in extra-curricular activities like Mock Trial and Model United Nations. Taking seriously their responsibility to become “powerful agents of change,” our students have started tutoring programs for young adolescents, worked with homeless women, and each year attend the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women conference.
A strong advisory program provides a supportive environment where teacher-mentors create a small, comfortable community for students to find their voice, discover their passion, and create friends for life. St. Mary’s Academy graduates are accomplished, empowered women ready to make a difference in the world.
