School Notes:

  • The Shattuck-St. Mary’s experience is one of discovery, of uncovering one’s passions and true interests. When this occurs, a student finds purpose, engagement and, ultimately, a deep personal gratification. This sense of accomplishment fosters deeper and wider explorations, with the School’s programs serving as the platform for that exploration. And of course the ultimate outcome of all of this, the point of it all, is growth.

    Our school offers experiences typical of traditional boarding schools: the English teacher who illuminates the splendor of poetry, the Yearbook “scene” and the creative design process, the joy of inter-scholastic competition enjoyed on crisp fall afternoons, or the excitement of being the prosecutor for a mock trial hearing.

    For others, the discovery comes in a way that is distinctly Shattuck-St. Mary's. It comes from partaking in one of our Centers of Excellence programs in academics (Honors, BioScience, Global Education, Academic Skills), the arts (Vocal Performance, Pre-Conservatory Strings), or in athletics (Ice Hockey, Soccer, Figure Skating, Golf). These are programs led by highly credentialed Directors, designed to take the participants to even higher levels of achievement, and subsequent placement.

    What is truly special about our environment is that students find themselves in and amongst highly motivated peers. There is tremendous respect and appreciation across the student body for the work and effort of others. There is a feeling of safety and support, so much so that students are willing to take risks and try something new, outside their comfort zone to broaden their horizons. And it is these regular, ongoing efforts which give us our character and vitality and which regularly inform us about the growth our students are making.

    We are different from any other college preparatory, boarding school. And we are ok with that! Our fabric has many varied threads influencing who we are, indeed. 20 Countries and 37 States. Co-ed. 6th-12th grade. Numerous Curricular and Co-curricular offerings. 15 athletic teams. Centers of Excellence. And 460 students to bring this all to life. These threads create a fabric that is something to behold. It has a beauty and depth, a warmth and character, a dimension and subtlety that is truly unique.

    We invite you to learn more about us by exploring our web site and eventually, visiting our beautiful campus to experience something intentionally different.

    We wish you all the best with this important search!
