Our Campus

The St. Mary’s Academy campus sits on 24 beautiful acres in the stunning Cherry Hills Village neighborhood.

In 1864, the Sisters of Loretto purchased the original schoolhouse, which was located at 14th and California St. in what is now the heart of Downtown Denver. In 1911, the sisters moved the school campus to Pennsylvania St. and 14th Ave., before purchasing a farmhouse outside of town in 1951. When it was still a dirt road, University Boulevard became home to St. Mary's Academy, and the farmhouse is still in use as our main administrative building.

For the last 72 years, SMA has transformed the 24 acre campus. The grounds are comprised of the Lower School, Middle School, High School, Sanders House, Bishop Evans Sports Center, Community Center, a sustainable synthetic Nike Grind turf field, additional athletic fields, and ample space for children to enjoy the outdoors.
