Dear Prospective Saint,

At Saint Mary's School, we want you to find your courage - to be yourself, to expand your horizons and to open your heart and mind to new ideas and experiences. We have four years to show you how to conquer your fears and seize any and every opportunity, both inside and outside of the classroom.

How will you find your courage at Saint Mary's? By being curious about learning and interested in the world around you. By challenging yourself to take risks and achieve academically. By embracing the opportunity to live in a community with girls from around North Carolina, the United States and the world! By exploring your talents and passions as a musician, an artist, an athlete, a thespian or a student leader. By being part of a community that asks you to open your heart and mind to new ideas and experiences and applauds you as you achieve your personal best.

Built on an honor code where truth and integrity are valued, we are a school with the courage to do the right thing. We are teachers and students living and learning together. We are a larger community of 10,000 alumnae worldwide, who all know firsthand what it means to be a Saint Mary’s girl.

Where will you find your courage? Come visit and see for yourself. Tour the campus, sit in on a class, spend the night on dorm. This is the best way to know if Saint Mary’s is the right school for you.

We can’t wait to meet you!
