What is Founders’ Day?

St. Mary’s Academy students, faculty and staff host an annual Founders' Day celebration to commemorate the school’s 1859 founding. Each October we celebrate our unique mission and rich history with an all-school Mass, luncheon program, tours and class pictures for alumnae observing their 50th, 60th, 65th, 70th and 75th reunion years. For one week leading up to the event, current students learn about the history and legacy of the school, so when our honored alumnae arrive, , they understand upon whose shoulders they stand.

2017 Founders' Day

The classes of 1967, 1957 and 1952, 1947, 1942 and 1937 were honored at the 2017 Founders' Day. To see more photos from the 2017 Founders' Day event, please click here.
