There are a number of activities and events happening throughout the year at Mount St. Mary.  Some of our most popular ones are listed below. We hope you’ll feel welcome to attend all that interest you — it’s a great way to show your support and stay connected with our school community!


Each fall the Houndstooth Golf Classic provides a wonderful opportunity to support the Belles while enjoying a fun golf outing with friends. Our 2021 event took place Friday, October 1, at Rebsamen Golf Course and raised more than $25,000 for the Athletic and Spirit Booster Clubs. We look forward to seeing everyone back on the golf course in 2022. Information about sponsorship opportunities and the link to register your team will be posted here once it’s available.

This family-friendly event promises a challenging, yet beautiful 3.1-mile course through the historic Hillcrest neighborhood surrounding Mount St. Mary Academy that is perfect for participants of all abilities. Our 2021 race will take place on Saturday, December 4. However, supporters will be able to participate “virtually” or in a location other than Little Rock beginning Saturday, November 13. More details and the link to register for this year’s event are available at

Each year Mount St. Mary welcomes our students’ grandparents on campus to spend time with their grandchild viewing the latest developments in our classrooms and special program areas. This year’s event — originally scheduled for Friday, March 5, 2021 — was canceled due to COVID-19 and will not be rescheduled. We will post information about our 2022 event once it has been scheduled.

Since its inception in 1985, the biennial Dinner Belles dinner and auction has been a special time for friends of Mount St. Mary Academy to enjoy an evening of camaraderie, dinner, and fabulous live and silent auction items. We hope you can join us for our Spring 2022 event; stay tuned for more details!

A signature biennial event, the Mercy & Me luncheon celebrates the nine Mercy values and their place in community leadership. Our Spring 2021 event was held virtually on Saturday, April 24, due to the ongoing effects of COVID. You can watch the recording of the online celebration here. We look forward to being able to once again host this special event in person in Spring 2023!
