About MSM

Our Philosophy

Mount St. Mary Academy continues the educational and spiritual vision of the Sisters of St. Mary of Namur who, “In simplicity and joy, have offered all to God.”

Students are challenged to understand people of varied backgrounds by using their diverse gifts to participate in service to the community. Recognizing each student’s strengths and potential for growth, Mount St. Mary offers a varied curriculum that effectively encourages each student to succeed.

Through academic and co-curricular programs, students explore their own identities and values and enhance their moral decision-making skills. Students graduate from Mount St. Mary having attained global understanding, critical and abstract thinking skills, and the ability to express their knowledge in a coherent and literate manner.

In an atmosphere of mutual trust and respect, we support each other in times of celebration as well as sadness.

By nurturing our students emotionally, academically, and spiritually, we prepare them to seek out solutions to life’s problems in the light of Christ’s teachings.
