Welcome to Salem Academy!
Welcome to the Salem Academy website. Here you can gather information about the courses we teach, the fine arts and athletic programs we offer and the rich traditions which are a part of everything we do. For 240 years the Salem Academy experience has been rooted in a fundamental respect for women and a belief in the value of education.
Too often, the prevailing culture compels young women to look and act in certain ways. The fact that each girl has her own set of unique, God-given, gifts and talents is often lost in that push to ride the cultural tidal wave. Our all-girls atmosphere provides a safe haven for our students to focus on becoming self-directed, confident, and well-educated young women able to lead life on their own terms.
So, if you are a student or a parent interested in taking a closer look, our hope is that you will browse around the website and eventually come for a visit. Salem Academy really is the best choice for young women who are looking for a place thoroughly committed to their education.
