The All-Girl Advantage
No Boys? No Problem!


It's normal for students interested in attending an all-girls' school to wonder, "What is it like to go to school without boys?" Well, first of all, we have many events with the all-boys' school, Catholic High School (football games, drama productions, proms, dances, etc.), so there are opportunities to socialize with guys outside of school.

For students looking for an all-girls' high school, it's cool that not only are we the oldest school in the state of Arkansas, but we are also the only all-girls school in the state.

But most of all, it's pretty amazing to be in an environment where all class leaders, speakers, writers, singers, athletes, artists and stars are girls. Talk about Girl Power! And the focus is on academics, not appearances. So don't worry about stuffing that industrial-size can of hairspray into your backpack. Around here, the focus is on what's in your head, not on your head!


In fact there are national studies that confirm what the Mount has known for years...
that students who attend an all-girls school*:
  • Enjoy higher academic performance
    á
  • Possess more self-confidence and self-esteem
    á
  • Acquire more leadership skills
    á
  • Are more encouraged in areas like math and science
    á
  • Are better prepared for college courses
    á
  • Attend graduate and postgraduate school in greater numbers
    á
  • Participate more fully in the classroom and in the community
*National Foundation for Educational Research, 2003; National Coalition of Girls' Schools, 2000; American Association of University Women, 1998.


Hear from our students what they think about the all-girl advantage, or
sign up to attend Open Houseá to learn more about Mount St. Mary Academy.
