As we near the 250th anniversary of the founding of Salem Academy, our nearly 3,000 alumnae are living in forty-seven states, the District of Columbia, and more than twenty foreign countries.
They are successful in business, media, international affairs, politics, teaching, medicine, science, the arts, and many other areas. They are exemplary friends, wives, mothers, and volunteers who make their communities better places to live.
Although Salem Academy alumnae have chosen many paths, they will always share common bonds from their time at Salem: the integrity of adhering to a cherished Honor Code; an excellent education received from caring and talented faculty; and the happy memories of Salem traditions, such as reciting the Moravian blessing, receiving class rings, and participating in Senior Vespers. Alumnae also share the bond of sisterhood—a feeling that endures no matter how many years go by.
