Academics

Saint Mary's School is an interconnected community where creative and collaborative teaching and learning happen in every part of school life.

Here you will build a strong academic and personal foundation while discovering your intellectual courage and growing as lifelong learner.

An interdisciplinary approach ensures no subject exists in isolation at Saint Mary’s School. Coursework is integrated so you build on existing knowledge and make important connections between areas of study.

Teachers challenge you—as you and your fellow students challenge each other—to examine ideas in new ways. You find the courage to ask questions, debate, probe and defend. You discover your voice and use it with confidence. You achieve more than you ever thought possible.
