What an exciting summer here at the Academy! We start the 2017-18 school year off with a brand new look that is both refreshing and inspiring. It all comes as a result of changes outlined in the Operational Plan developed by my senior staff and me at the direction of the Board of Directors and with funding from generous donors. The goal of the plan was to initiate projects that would enhance our appeal to both current and prospective families. As I stated in my Year End Reflection in June, our intention is to bring the Academy back to its structural and aesthetic glory, to continue to deliver on our pledge for academic excellence and to build community.

Upper School Open Houses 10/1 & 11/5

Attend An Open House Event

The Academy is the only all-girls high school in the region and we've been educating and empowering young women since 1854. Our experience working with young women shows in the achievements and character of our students. Our students far exceed national and state averages on AP exams and 97% of the Class of 2017 received one or more merit-based scholarships. Attend an Open House on Sunday, Oct. 1st or Nov. 5th from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and discover how our rigorous and supportive environment helps our students find their voice and become leaders both in our community and beyond.
