A Catholic, private, college preparatory school for young women.

Mount St. Mary Academy, founded by the Sisters of St. Mary of Namur, is a Catholic, private, college preparatory school for young women. Within a nurturing and academically challenging and inclusive environment, the Academy strives to develop the whole person’s gifts and potential. Guided by our Catholic tradition, and rooted in Gospel values, we empower scholars to be leaders dedicated to lifelong learning, moral integrity, social justice, and service to and inclusion of others.

  • Robust Academics

    We have replaced Regents Exams with robust, creative assessments. MSM follows New York State Common Core Curriculum in all coursework.
  • Technology

    Three 3D Printers, a Microsoft Surface for every student, upgraded Wi-FI, Smart TVs throughout building, Tech Lab and Maker's Space.

    Recognizing the importance of educating young women for the 21st century, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) is a major emphasis at MSM.
  • We Love the Arts

    MSM is highly regarded for its fine arts programs. Students involved in band or vocal programs take these as part of their in-school curriculum.
  • Athletics

    Throughout the school year, MSM offers athletic programs to help develop our students into well-rounded, healthy, and disciplined young women. The Mount St. Mary Thunder is made up of 22 different athletic teams.
