Academic Curriculum

The program of studies at St. Mary’s is designed to provide each student with the opportunity for a comprehensive college preparatory education. The academic program emphasizes a rich and broad curriculum anchored in the arts, sciences, and humanities. Each student is prepared to meet and exceed the New York state standards and be eligible for admission to the nation’s most selective colleges and universities. St. Mary’s recognizes individual differences by providing a range of skill levels for a number of courses.


Each student enrolls in four years of English, theology, history, science, mathematics and language. Electives are also available and each student is required to take two years of fine or performing arts.


Our performing arts program offers students opportunities to participate in programs such as Theater, Chorus and Dance.


Opportunities for excellence are extensive, including numerous Advanced Placement courses, college credit options, and honors classes.
