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.
