High School Principal's Blog

Iswari Natarajan, High School Principal

On a perfect fall afternoon, I found myself in a room full of women who were astonishingly authentic, unapologetically themselves, and unconditionally joyful. It was the Golden Graduates luncheon attended by more than 115 alumnae from the classes of 1947 through 1968. The senior class president of the class of 1968 began her speech with, “ St. Mary's Academy gave us the confidence to find our voice.” Boom. Right out of the gates, she nailed the essence of the educational experience at our High School – building unshakable confidence to find one’s voice.


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.

Expect the best from a girl…that’s what you’ll get.
