It's not about participation trophies. You want a new personal best.

At Saint Mary’s School, we break stereotypes every day. Beginning with the ones about girls’ schools. Along with no uniforms, there are also no limits to what you can accomplish here.

Our 23-acre campus is located in vibrant downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, just blocks away from some of the nation’s most forward-thinking companies—many of which offer internships, mentorships, and hands-on learning opportunities for our students.

In our open-door classrooms, we follow an innovative curriculum that’s as demanding as it is inspiring. Here, you will be challenged to think critically and collaboratively, exercise leadership skills, embrace your independence, and explore your passions as you prepare to excel in college and beyond.

If you’re ready to shatter expectations on the way to unlocking your true potential, Saint Mary’s School has everything you need.

You've got this.

Summer Reading 2020

Saint Mary's School values the joy of reading and learning together. Each year we provide a summer reading list for students to explore, as well as choose a book our school community will read together. This year’s required reading selection, Piecing Me Together, provides an opportunity for us to reflect on personal values and building empathy and understanding. Piecing Me Together has earned many positive reviews and endorsements, as noted in the book’s description below. It also comes with a resource guide to assist us leading discussions with students and faculty when we return in the fall.
