Preparation for college and adult life isn’t just found between the covers of a book. It’s also found in the heart of a caring teacher, in the smile of a friendly classmate, and in the eyes of an encouraging school community.
Take a look at Mount St. Mary and you, too, will discover what we have known for more than 160 years — that young women excel personally and academically in an all-girls environment.
This year the Mount St. Mary Academy Liturgy Team, BETA Club, Interact Club and all three language clubs offered the opportunity for the school community to join in the season of giving by donating to the MSM Giving Tree. Donated toys were distributed to Arkansas Children’s Hospital and coats, hats and gloves were given to children at Daisy Bates elementary school.
Mount St. Mary Academy invites you to join with us in preparation during the season of Advent. To open up ourselves to the rebirth of Christ's love in our hearts, we've compiled an online advent calendar offering daily scriptures, reflections and some seasonal fun for our school community in the weeks leading up to Christmas.
