St. Mary's Academy is an independent, Catholic school in the tradition of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary. Serving young women in Grades 7 to 12, the Academy offers the advantage of an all-female environment that encourages students to excel, to explore personal talents and to exercise leadership. We have a long tradition of providing an intellectually challenging academic program, an extensive campus ministry and religious education program, and a variety of extra-curricular activities.
Education in the faith is a significant aspect of the St. Mary's Academy difference. Our young women are nurtured in an environment where faith and learning walk hand in hand. Our holistic approach not only prioritizes academic excellence but also fosters spiritual growth and moral integrity, preparing our students to be compassionate leaders of tomorrow.
Why All Girls?
Studies identify several areas in which single-gender education produces favourable outcomes for girls, especially in terms of their confidence, engagement and aspirations.
St. Mary’s Academy strives to keep students, parents, alumnae and friends informed about news, events and activities at the Academy. The Torch Light magazine, for alumnae and friends, is published annually in September. Parents and students receive an email communiqué at the end of each school week and a Newsletter twice per year. Our students also strive to keep the student body informed by way of regularly publishing their student-led newspaper, The Spark.
