A Tradition of Excellence

For more than a century, St. Mary's Academy has provided its students with a rigorous college preparatory education that encompasses all subjects in a caring and nurturing learning environment. Challenging and intellectually stimulating, the coursework is holistic with an emphasis on teaching students to make connections across the curriculum. Students are also encouraged to take risks, move outside of their comfort zones and expand their horizons both inside and outside of the classroom.

Accredited for more than fifty years consecutively by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, St. Mary's Academy has an impressive and dedicated Administrative Team and faculty, many of which possess advanced degrees. Most important is the commitment of each instructor and staff member to treat every student they encounter with the utmost dignity, respect and individuality. Additionally, every discipline is also imbued with a spiritual and moral component-a highlight of an SMA education.
