Mother Mcauley Liberal Arts High School is a Catholic educational community committed to providing a quality secondary education for young women.
In the tradition of the Sisters of Mercy and their foundress, Catherine McAuley, we prepare students to live in a complex, dynamic society by teaching them to think critically, communicate effectively, respond compassionately to the needs of their community and assume roles of Christian leadership.
In partnership with parents, we empower young women to acknowledge their giftedness and to make decisions with a well-developed moral conscience.
We foster an appreciation of the diversity of the global community and a quest for knowledge and excellence as life long goals.
