A Global High School

Mount St. Mary Academy is a Global High School with Catholic Relief Services. As a school, Mount St. Mary Academy is working to increase advocacy and provide support for CRS’s high priority issues including poverty-focused international assistance, human trafficking, climate change and the pursuit of peace.

Through a school-wide effort, MSM is working to provide assistance for our sister school run by the Sisters of St. Mary of Namur in Rwanda while also continuing to emphasize human trafficking awareness and aid for refugees.

MSM is the first all girls school in Buffalo to become a Global High School with CRS.
