In all grades, 7-12, the Academy’s college preparatory program features a rigorous academic curriculum, including honors and advanced placement courses.  A rich array of co-curricular offerings includes award-winning athletics, a National and State champion dance team, literary and artistic publications, service opportunities and a comprehensive women’s choral program, which along with winning many regional and national competitions, sung for Pope Francis in Rome on January 1, 2016.  Students can enter the Academy in 7th or 8th grade and spend 5-6 years, or go the traditional high school route and attend for grades 9-12.
