Visit SMA

St. Mary's Academy is virtually yours to explore this year. While our campus has welcomed students back with health and safety measures in place, our admissions process is virtual this year, in the interest of the public health and safety for all.
Experience SMA this year with a virtual visit and other Zoom events that will welcome you and your family to our community. It's like none other.

St. Mary’s Academy is Denver’s premier independent, Catholic, co-educational PK-8 and all-girls High School that was established in 1864 by the Sisters of Loretto. It continues to be a forward-thinking educational leader focused on a values-based, purpose-driven education with rigorous academics, integrated service learning, outstanding faculty, and a commitment to individualized attention and developing the whole student.  

The ethos of St. Mary’s Academy is deeply rooted in the spirituality and mission of Loretto, where faith, community, justice, and respect serve as a touchstone for all aspects of our community. The Loretto School Values are gospel values that guide our work, as taught and lived by Jesus. We are a school that puts faith beliefs and spirituality into action, and encourages moral and character development of our students to love, accept, and treat others with respect.

SMA Earns Recognition for AP Computer Science Offerings

SMA is one of only 232 schools in the country to be recognized with the College Board's AP Computer Science Female Diversity Award for expanding young women's access to AP Computer Science A (CSA).

The academy also offers AP Computer Science Principles at our all-girl high school. Research shows that girls’ schools are leading the way in closing the gender gap by setting up women with the essential skills and attributes needed to succeed and lead in STEM-related industries.
