Mount St. Mary Academy

Welcome to Mount St. Mary Academy – voted Best Private School in Arkansas Times’ “Best of Arkansas 2022” readers’ poll and Best Private High School in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette’s “2022 Best of the Best” readers’ choice awards.


Thank you for your interest in Mount St. Mary Academy, a college-preparatory Catholic high school nestled in the heart of Little Rock!  Founded in 1851 by the Sisters of Mercy, we’re proud to be the oldest continuously operated school in Arkansas.  At the Mount, you will find a unique environment – one exclusively for girls!  Our faculty, parents, administration and staff are all bonded by our mission to build a strong moral and intellectual foundation for our students in order to fully prepare them to meet the future as women of wisdom, compassion and integrity.


Mount Girls are driven by service, given opportunities to discover and create, encouraged to be self-starters and ethical leaders, and guided in developing analytical skills and original thought.  Our students surprise a lot of people with the skills they develop, and often those most surprised, at first, are the girls themselves.  Our supportive, yet challenging all-girls Catholic environment provides a platform where young women can build confidence as they grow academically and spiritually.  With a solid foundation built upon scholarly habits, faith and personal values, nearly 100 percent of each graduating class goes on to pursue a college education each year.


Please join our mailing list to receive important news and updates throughout the year.  We also encourage you to experience what it’s like to be a Mount Girl by attending one of our shadow days or other special events, or by scheduling a private tour for you and your family.  Let us share with you all of the benefits Mount St. Mary Academy has to offer young women.  I look forward to meeting you!
