At The Mary Louis Academy you will find a welcoming community where spiritual beliefs count. The high school experience is a time of growth and challenge for every student. TMLA is a journey not just of the intellect, but also of the spirit.
The Mary Louis Academy, sponsored by the Sisters of St. Joseph, Brentwood, NY, provides an atmosphere which fosters academic excellence and respect which in turn nurtures the whole person by integrating faith and life. Our curriculum follows the Catholic doctrine; our values-centered environment fosters a mindful awareness, tolerance and respect for self and others.
Campus Ministry is the spiritual lifeline of The Mary Louis Academy. From retreats to service projects, campus ministry encourages students to deepen their relationship with God and with God’s Church, to develop as women of faith, dignity and service while strengthening their Catholic faith.
TMLA’s Campus Ministry plays an essential role in furthering the mission of the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph a mission that is rooted in the mission of Jesus—to heal, redeem and liberate all people.
Through various activities, liturgies, prayer services and other experiences, Campus Ministry strives to continuously develop the spiritual faith life of The Mary Louis Academy community in exciting new ways.
The role of Campus Minister is to direct and facilitate all religious activities organized by TMLA students that are held throughout the school year.
Through the implementation of various programs and activities, it is the goal of the Campus Minister to help students discern and construct ways of being which are filled with meaning and purpose.
Campus Ministry programs work to create a vibrant, prayerful community where Reconciliation, Unity and All Inclusive Love are at the very essence of who we are.
