Located less than an hour’s drive from Boston, Presentation of Mary Academy is a coeducational US college preparatory high school for students in grades 9-12. The Roman Catholic private boarding school sits on the restored Edward Searles Estate (a 19th century architect). There are more than 30 Advanced Placement and Honors courses to choose from and because the percentage of international to domestic students is low, Presentation of Mary Academy allows for an authentic, all-American high school experience.
The picturesque 50-acre campus is a short drive from the northeastern coastline and mountain ski areas. Facilities include a gymnasium, science labs, an auditorium and a fine arts building. Every student also receives a membership to an off-site fitness club.
Sports and Arts
Presentation of Mary Academy has a competitive athletic program with traditional (basketball and soccer) and non-traditional (snowboarding) teams.
