Our Mission

 The Mary Louis Academy in Jamaica Estates, N.Y. is a Catholic college preparatory school for young women sponsored by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Brentwood, N.Y. and rooted in their charism of unity, reconciliation and inclusive love that embraces all of creation.

In an atmosphere that fosters academic excellence and respect, we seek to empower young women to realize and value their own unique gifts – intellectual, social and spiritual – and to use their gifts as leaders in creating a just society.

We are a community that celebrates cultural diversity and continues the Catholic tradition of service.
