Salem is a school that is advertises sisterhood. For international students, weeks before entering school they will be given a 'big' sister from Salem Academy. This sister will assist the new student in learning the ways of the school. This program is honestly very rewarding as you will meet people and gain friends quickly, starting with your sister of course!

Going to Salem was the best decision I ever made. Lifelong friendships were made, and I was so prepared for my college experience both academically and in terms of my independence. College was a breeze after Salem. My heart is with this school forever!
Salem Academy is a school dedicated to academic excellence. As a student, you feel a deeply impassioned investment from your instructors. Being a diverse school with international as well as local and national students, there is a wonderful cultural exchange that gives Salem Academy an edge on giving a holistic education.
