A Continuum of Sisters

“Salem alumnae are unique in that we are part of a continuum of sisters stretching back 247 years. No other school can claim such a long heritage of educating girls.

Martha Manning A’73
Trustee, President of Alumnae Board

As Salem students transition into Salem alumnae, they become part of a rare and rich legacy — one that has fostered the intellectual, spiritual, social, and physical wellbeing of girls for nearly 250 years.




We Are Salem Strong

Our 3,000 alumnae live throughout the U.S. and in more than 20 countries. They lead and succeed in a variety of fields: Business, media, international affairs, politics, teaching, medicine, science, the arts, and more.

They live meaningful lives, enriching their communities and making the world a better place. And they share the bond of sisterhood, forever linked by the joyful experience that is Salem Academy.
