A Culture of Trust and Encouragement

We believe that education for today’s world is best done within a community of belonging. To prepare our students to thrive after graduation, it is essential that they engage in self-reflection so that they understand both themselves and the community they are a part of.  This process of self-reflection—a process that is increasingly critical in an ever-changing world—gives our students an opportunity to understand various backgrounds and perspectives, examine biases, and develop empathy. Our authentically diverse community creates dynamic opportunities at every developmental stage to engage in challenging conversations, practice the skills of civil discourse, and internalize the habits of heart and mind that lead to self-awareness.

Saint Mary’s Hall cultivates an environment where all community members are seen, safe, and valued. We honor everyone’s unique beliefs, identities, and abilities.
