Capitalizing on the strengths of girls

Saint Mary’s School offers a curriculum designed to capitalize on the strengths of girls as they prepare for college and life. As a girls' school, Saint Mary's provides a culture, climate, and community that together generate high levels of personal and academic self-confidence and a can-do attitude. Research shows that girls in single-gender environments move on to advanced courses more often than do girls in co-educational classes. They earn better grades and report that they have greater confidence in themselves and feel more positive about their learning environment.
