Welcome! We are excited that you are considering St. Mary's Academy for high school.

This year, St. Mary's celebrates 158 years of educating young women at our vibrant campus in downtown Portland. St. Mary's Academy offers a challenging, college-preparatory program aimed at establishing a solid intellectual foundation from which our students can grow and succeed. Our holistic approach, which includes athletics, activities, service, and leadership, helps our students develop into confident, compassionate, and capable young women, who are ready to lead and serve. Our rich tradition, steeped in the Catholic faith, nurtures each student’s spirituality and encourages them to explore and expand their faith. The SMA experience is extraordinary, and I look forward to sharing it with your family.

And it all begins with the admissions process, where you can witness first-hand the extraordinary high school experience that benefits a diverse community of over 700 young women.

We are here to inspire you, challenge you, and drive you to set and achieve your goals. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
