Open House Preview

Plan your Virtual Open House experience today! Our first two live sessions (at 1:00pm and 1:30pm) are perfect for families seeking an overview of academic programs, the all-girls advantage, clubs and activities, and freshman year supports at St. Mary’s Academy. From there, we encourage you to pick and choose the sessions that interest you!

In addition to the live sessions below, we have the following two offerings available:

Virtual Tour

The student-led tour is a great way to "walk" through campus and chat one-on-one with a student ambassador. Bring your questions, and drop-in for a 15-minute tour anytime between 1:00-4:00pm.

Live Chat

If you’re feeling tired of Zoom but you have questions about St. Mary’s Academy, then open up a live chat with a student ambassador! Students will be available from 12:00-4:30pm, and you can send a chat as many times as you’d like.

Webinar vs. Zoom Room: In webinar sessions, you can view the SMA panelists and ask questions via chat. Your camera and microphone will not be used. In Zoom rooms, you will have the choice to turn your camera/microphone on or off. This is the closest thing possible to meeting you in-person at this time, so don’t be shy to turn your camera on and say hello. We are eager to get to know you.
