School Mission

Now in its third century of sustaining a community in which girls learn best, Salem Academy remains dedicated to fostering the intellectual, spiritual, social, and physical growth of young women. Founded in 1772 by the Moravian church, Salem Academy flourishes today as an independent, college-preparatory school that celebrates its diversity and affirms each student's uniqueness. As advocates for women in leadership roles, we recognize our place in a global society and persist in our commitment to a lifetime of learning. We pledge ourselves to retain and nurture those values which encourage each student to take risks, show integrity, and discover her passion as she sets out on her own journey..
