Saint Mary's School
Saint Mary’s School in Raleigh, NC, is an all-girls, college preparatory, boarding and day high school for girls in grades 9-12. We are the 4th oldest boarding school in the United States and have stayed true to our mission Since 1842. As times have changed, Saint Mary’s has evolved with it.
Today, we challenge girls academically – to be BOLD, to be INSPIRED, to be PREPARED, and to be EXTRAORDINARY. We know girls and we know the all-girl learning environment at Saint Mary’s School encourages girls to step outside their comfort zones, engage their minds, amplify their voices, and discover who they are and who they want to become.
Our faculty utilize teaching and learning strategies that capitalize on the strengths of girls – like opportunities for collaboration, self-expression, and self-directed learning. Our curriculum and programming offer a wide array of liberal arts subjects and out-of-class activities to give girls the choice they want. And real-world learning experiences add an additional layer to the Saint Mary’s experience to provide girls with learning that is relevant and meaningful for them.
When girls enroll at Saint Mary’s School, they are a part of a long legacy of women – alumnae who have come from every walk of life, from across the United States and around the world. Here, girls are accepted and empowered in their learning; to grow spiritually and socially. They are recognized for their unique talents, passions, and interests – and those yet to be discovered.
They also grow in confidence, amplify their voices, and discover who they want to become.
