From The Mary Louis Academy

The Mary Louis Academy, located on a beautiful hilltop campus in Jamaica Estates, is a Catholic, college preparatory school for young women founded in 1936 by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Brentwood, NY.

As New York City’s largest all-girls high school, our students hail from 94 neighborhoods to find numerous opportunities to challenge their minds, develop their voices, and find lifelong friends. These young women thrive in a climate of support and respect, emerging as confident leaders.

At TMLA, 99% of students receive the Regents Diploma with Advanced Designation (9 regents), as compared to the State requirement (5 regents). Students may enroll in one of our renowned Diploma Designation programs, allowing a specialized focus in areas that develop and display their talents.

With over 60 clubs, 29 athletic teams and countless service and leadership opportunities, the after-school atmosphere is exciting and lively as students engage in their interests well beyond the academic day.
