Academics

 

The faculty at St. Mary’s Academy provides a dynamic curriculum and learning experiences designed to unleash the curiosity, creativity, and passion of SMA students. We provide a rigorous academic environment where excellence is modeled and there are abundant opportunities to develop resilience and responsibility. We are committed to engaging, supporting, and inspiring every student.

 

Junior Kindergarten to grade 8 at St. Mary’s Academy is coeducational, while our high school is all girls. Students come from across the metro area and represent many religious and ethnic backgrounds—creating a vibrant community of collaboration, discovery, and unity.

 

In the Lower School, children explore through socio-emotional and authentic learning. In the Middle School, adolescent learners connect and discover identity through service within the local community. In the High School, young women evolve to trust their own voices, serve as role models for our younger students, and, with confidence, leave prepared for the demands of college life and beyond.
