Middle School

Middle School is a time of transformation. A dedicated faculty - who know both the ins and outs of their subject matter, as well as the ups and downs of a girl's life during these critical years - challenges students to develop the reading, writing, and thinking skills they need for Upper School, college, and life.

Upper School

In Upper School, students are immersed in a rigorous college preparatory curriculum that extends beyond the classroom to provide real-life experiences. From the performance stage to community outreach, from the athletic field to Chapel, St. Mary's girls learn to collaborate, inspire others, and achieve their goals.

At St. Mary's, I didn't learn what I wanted to be; rather, I felt encouraged to explore all the things I could be. St. Mary's has been my launchpad to try anything - author events in Memphis schools, international relations in Washington, D.C., Environment, Health, and Safety at Tesla, and now battery research in Europe. For me, all roads lead to St. Mary's, and I'm thankful for the people and experiences that made the corner of Perkins and Walnut Grove home.
