The Mary Louis Academy
- The Mary Louis Academy in Jamaica Estates, N.Y. is a Catholic college preparatory school for young women sponsored by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Brentwood, N.Y. Our mission is rooted in the mission of Jesus- to heal, redeem and liberate all people.
- We strive to reflect this by being a reconciling and non-violent community, fostering unity and all-inclusive love.
- The Mary Louis Academy provides an atmosphere which fosters academic excellence and respect which in turn nurtures the whole person by integrating faith and life.
- Consistent with the charism of the Sisters of St. Joseph, The Mary Louis Academy seeks to develop leaders who are rooted in Gospel values and committed to creating a just society.
- We are a community that celebrates cultural diversity. We recognize that we share a partnership with parents and guardians in developing young women who will take responsibility for their life choices and value service to their community.
- In a world increasingly impersonal and technological, we endeavor to empower each student to realize and value her own unique spiritual, intellectual, physical, emotional and social potential as a leader in today's society.

I absolutely love The Mary Louis Academy. There is a strong sense of community, and our teachers and the faculty really care for our social, mental, academic, and physical wellbeing. TMLA produces well-rounded, articulate, and powerful women who go on to hold high up positions in the world. I am always challenged and engaged in my classes, and I highly recommend that you send daughter here if you want her to spend her most precious and formative years around young women of excellence. I am in my last year at TMLA, and the time really flew! HILLTOPPER NATION!!!!
