Why consider an all-girls academic setting?
Studies show that girls in all-girls' schools:
- Do better academically and in examinations for university entrance
- Are more likely to choose math and science courses and excel in these areas
- Are more likely to continue into post secondary education
- Have a greater sense of self esteem
- Have less stereotyped views of men's versus women's occupations
Studies indicate that graduates from all-girls' schools are:
- More likely to graduate from college or university
- More likely to obtain doctorates
- More likely to be professionals or hold executive or managerial positions in business
- More financially successful

The mission of the academy is, “To provide the finest Christ-centred learning environment which inspires young women to develop spirit, leadership, intellect, self-discovery and service."
