St. Mary's Academy Reviews

I like that St. Mary’s Academy is lenient because it prepares us for adulthood. After graduation, many students are going to college and we will have to know responsibility and St. Mary’s prepares us for that. As far as change, I would like to see more challenging academics with proper resources. I would like to see more AP classes and more challenging material. I would also like to see the proper resources (textbooks, powerpoints, etc.) that would prepare us for assessments. Lastly, I would like to see less bullying among students.

My experience at St.Mary's Academy has been like no other. I have been at this school for most of my life and I would recommend anyone to send their child here. At St.Mary's they teach us the importance of value and christ. They are preparing young women and men for the outside world!
St. Mary’s Acadmey is an excellent all girls catholic school. St. Mary’s Academy is committed to the threefold purpose of Catholic education (message, community and service) as outlined in To Teach As Jesus Did. We strive to promote an integration of religious truths and values as we work toward building a Faith Community.
