For 175 years, St. Mary’s School has helped girls discover their strengths, develop resilience, and explore what’s possible. Today, our alumnae are making the world a better place thanks to the skills they learned here. The St. Mary’s Fund ensures that each girl has all she needs to learn, grow, and thrive.

Costumes to encourage imaginative play


Professional development conference for one teacher


Hands-on tools for learning math skills


Class set of leadership books


Lunch for one student for the entire school year


All-day visioning retreat for seniors

While the academics at St. Mary’s are superior, most of what I learned at St. Mary’s was outside of a textbook. The teamwork, objectivity, fairness, compassion, and honesty are attributes that are critical to my role at Legacy Wealth Management and have served me well both in business and personally. My St. Mary’s friends are some of my closest friends today. I would not trade my experience at St. Mary’s for anything.
