From the Head of School

At Marymount, we are rewriting the narrative of what an independent, Catholic, all-girls school can be. We know that it is possible to have a high-level, challenging and engaging college-preparatory program in a supportive and balanced community. Our educational ethos is one of expansion, not constriction, which is fundamental to our near-century-old pillars of spirituality, values and social justice.
Through our signature curricular program (with courses as diverse as Japanese Literature, Computer Science, and Discrete Mathematics and Coding), we offer a depth and breadth of academic subjects and extracurricular activities that surpass what one expects at a high school. Our dynamic faculty immerse our students in 21st century learning, while, at the same time, helping them learn to balance a modern life that is so focused on superlatives. In our fast-paced society, we acknowledge the ever-evolving needs of the whole girl, and meet them with our distinctive school culture of care and concern - what I refer to as our "invisible curriculum." 
 
Your daughter will feel this energy when she first steps on campus, animated by our Founding Order’s, the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary, core motto that, “all may have life and have it to the full.” As a Sailor, your daughter will learn to create and be a part of our joyful sisterhood while learning to problem-solve and develop confidence in her sense of self.
 
We want your daughter to be more than a student at Marymount. We want her to be a student of Marymount, and, eventually, of the world as a contributing, competent and caring woman who has the heart to do anything and the education to know how. I invite you to learn more about our dynamic community of engaged learners and esteemed faculty and imagine how your daughter can make her M-Print on our school and beyond. 
 
Warmly,
 
Jacqueline L. Landry
