Marymount Academy Tops the List for This Year’s Fraser Institute Report
Marymount Academy has topped the list in the Greater Sudbury area for the annual Fraser Institute report. The school garnered a grade of 8.4 out of 10. This also puts the school in the top 40 secondary schools in Ontario out of more than 700 schools across the province. St. Benedict C.S.S and Bishop Alexander Carter also received positive scores of 7.8 and 6.6 respectively.
Marymount Academy is the only all-girls academy in Northern Ontario and focuses on providing innovative and engaging learning opportunities for its students. This year, the Grade 12 leadership class had the opportunity to lead faith retreats for Grade 7 and 8 students. Students also fared well in the annual Board wide science fair and the school continued to offer students specialized learning through the SHSM programs of Arts and Culture, architecture and engineering and Non-profit.
The staff and students at Marymount Academy also focus on community projects throughout the year, gathering together to celebrate Thanksgiving as a school. They also contributed to the Warm Soup for Warm Hearts initiative where students helped form a human chain to pass over 200 containers of soup to the Samartian Centre to help feed those in need.
“When you enter the walls of Marymount, you are not just entering a building. You are entering into the Regal family,” said Lori Holden, Principal of Marymount Academy. “Teachers and students work together to create an environment that follows our school motto- Learn that you may Live. I believe this environment allows our students to excel into well rounded young adults.”
