Welcome to Saint Mary's School!

At Saint Mary’s School, we challenge girls academically – to be BOLD, to be INSPIRED, to be PREPARED and to become EXTRAORDINARY.

When girls enroll at Saint Mary's School, they are a part of a long legacy of women – alumnae who have come from every walk of life, from across the United States and around the world. Here, girls are accepted and empowered in their learning; to grow spiritually and socially. They are recognized for their unique talents, passions, and interests – and those yet to be discovered.

They also grow in confidence, amplify their voices, and discover who they want to become.

We are excited to welcome you to Saint Mary’s and hope to see you on campus very soon. In the meantime, take a look around our website and learn more about our academics, athletics, arts, clubs, organizations, faculty, staff, and our fantastic outcomes. And remember:

Here the Bonds of Friendship Strengthen.
