Due to winter weather, Salem Academy will open at 10:15 a.m. on Wednesday, December 12, 2018. See our Winter Storm Update page for details.



Salem Academy is a place where students can embrace their love of learning, find new strengths, and feel encouraged as they tackle a challenging curriculum.

Our liberal arts courses infuse young women with the knowledge and study habits to succeed in higher education and beyond. One hundred percent of our students are accepted into some of the nation’s most prestigious colleges and universities.

Lively discussion and debates are common in Salem classrooms, giving every girl the chance to be heard and to develop the confidence to innovate, explore, and take risks.

We continually adapt our program to meet the needs of contemporary students, offering AP and honors courses in every discipline. 

Members of Salem’s passionate, award-winning faculty use a combination of the most effective teaching methods to provide the support and challenge that students need to master every subject. 

Every student is matched with an advisor—a member of Salem’s faculty and administration who serves as an advocate and provides encouragement, support, and guidance to find the right level of academic challenge and overall balance.

Academic exploration at Salem also reaches beyond the conventional curriculum. During the three-week January Term, students can dive deep into a singular passion through unique classes, internships, or school-sponsored trips.
