What It's Like Being an Academy Student

Imagine getting ready for school each morning without stressing about what to wear or how you look? Academy students love the no-stress fashion factor during school days. You’ll also enjoy building close friendships in a supportive, “no drama” school environment.

If you enjoy leadership, you will feel empowered to join or create clubs and activities, organize events and take-charge as a class leader, student council representative, club president, committee member – the possibilities are endless. Academy teachers support student leaders from the sidelines, while letting girls take charge. You could help organize the Fall Ball, Sophomore Semi or Junior-Senior Prom, a fashion show, or more. Learn more about Leadership Opportunities.

If you are an athlete, you’ll enjoy camaraderie with other athletes who share your commitment to soccer, volleyball, track (three seasons), softball, tennis, basketball, swimming or cheerleading. You may be on one of the many teams who compete in post-season play-offs and snag state-level recognition. You can also try a new sport. Learn more about theAthletic Program.

If you are a dancer, you can join the Lancer Dancer club and perform in liturgies and on the stage. Into Glee? You’ll enjoy our large Glee Club, going to the recording studio to sing for the Academy’s annual Christmas CD, performing in the Drama Guild, and leading liturgies. Learn more about Student Life.

As a student, you will appreciate the focused, but relaxed, classroom environment, with close student-teacher relationships. You will appreciate getting support and encouragement from a caring, committed faculty, who are devoted to helping students before, during and after school, with the opportunity to email questions to teachers at any time. Academy teachers are passionately committed to helping each student achieve her personal best. You will be well-prepared for the college of your choice after four years at the Academy.

What are your questions? Contact the Admissions Office, and they will help you connect with a student or teacher who can answer your questions. Come see the Academy for yourself: Take a look during an Open House day, and/or join a host student for a morning of classes and lunch for a Shadow Day.
