Salem Academy Reviews
Speaking as a recent graduate (A'21), Salem has been paramount in my development into a confident and independent young woman. With various eclectic course offerings taught by passionate instructors who are eager to prolong learning outside of the classroom setting, Salem provides each of its students with ample opportunities to stretch their minds both intellectually and socially. (The multitude of unique traditions we have is only a plus)!
A recent shift in leadership and a change in campuses has elevated Salem to new heights, fostering a positive, empowering, and uplifting environment that allows students to thrive.
I highly encourage any student who is looking for a challenging, creative, and empowering education to give Salem a chance, and become a Salem Sister!
