Our Early Childhood girls are cooking up some nature inspired recipes in the new outdoor classroom. They created soups and cakes using fallen leaves, flowers, and of course, lots of dirt. This new space is another opportunity for our girls to explore, create and innovate in nature!

The St. Mary's College Counseling team works closely with each Upper School student individually starting in the 9th grade, helping her discover colleges and universities which fit her academic, social, environmental, and financial expectations, and guiding her through the entire application and selection process. As we heard from Caroline Ciaramitaro who is a freshman at UNC Chapel Hill, “Trust the process. One thing at a time. Take it day by day, and it all works out.” Our methods work. Last year, the 72 members of the Class of 2021 earned acceptances to 134 colleges in the U.S. and abroad. They matriculated to 47 different colleges in 21 states, DC, and Canada. They earned college scholarships totaling over $15 million.

As part of 7th grade Latin, the girls created an interactive map of the Roman Forum. They were each responsible for creating a model of one of the Forum’s monuments, as well as making an educational video of the monument, which is accessed through a QR code. Swipe to see the video that Lucy Lyon created about the Temple of Vesta. This is a great example of how SMS teachers ​​combine the latest technology with traditional teaching methods to bring these topics to life for our girls!

Calling all adventure seekers! Recently, a group of SMS girls went to Jamestown Crag in Arkansas for a day of climbing. All of the girls climbed hard and had a great day, rappelling down to the cliff base and then pulling on real rock. Now, the girls will have a chance to climb every month! Anyone in Middle or Upper schools interested in joining can contact Mr. Roberts at [email protected].

This week, during the Episcopal School Celebration, we celebrate our Episcopal identity along with nearly 1,200 other Episcopal schools and early childhood education programs. One of the visible markers of our Episcopal identity is Chapel. Girls in Early Childhood and Lower School attend Chapel once a week and participate in our ongoing character education program fondly known as the “Bridge to Caring.” Our girls in Middle and Upper Schools attend Chapel every day. In the midst of busy schedules, Chapel gives students, faculty, and guests an opportunity to pause and come together to sing, pray, and reflect. Follow the link in our bio to learn how St. Mary’s lives out it’s Episcopal identity.

Students in the 7th grade Community Connections class spent the morning serving with MIFA. This quarter, the students are working with MIFA to learn about issues Memphis faces including poverty, homelessness, food insecurity, and health inequity. Delivering Meals on Wheels with St. Mary’s faculty and staff helped the girls see the impact and importance of volunteerism on our community

MIFA is experiencing a shortage of meal volunteers. Help fill the gap! If you are interested in becoming a volunteer check out the link in our bio.

This morning in Chapel, Yancy Villa-Calvo inspired us to be thankful, resilient, and fearless. Yancy shared how three near-death experiences by the age of 35 moved her to quit her job and become a full-time artist.

“Because I know life can be over soon, I am neither planning on wasting it, nor remaining quiet when injustice happens,” she said.

Yancy’s visit was hosted by the Spanish Club and part St. Mary’s celebration of Hispanic Heritage month. Yancy is an interdisciplinary artist who seeks to create awareness, engage in conversation, and encourage action on issues of social justice, equity, and community prosperity.

This morning, we welcomed guests to campus and dedicated “River Meander,” created by Maysey Craddock's '89. Inspired by 1940s maps tracking the Mississippi's meander courses, each color represents a generation of the river, present and past, coursing together and shaping the world around it. River Meander flows along the north wall of the Athletic and Wellness Center up the Haslam Grand Staircase. We are grateful to Nancye Starnes and Mary Barker Starnes '95 for providing this beautiful gift.

Today, we join Episcopalians all over the world commemorating Constance and Her Companions, as known as the Martyrs of Memphis. These nuns came to Memphis in 1873 to take the helm of St. Mary’s. They sacrificially served the school and the community through two waves of the Yellow Fever. Last week, five St. Mary’s students cleaned the sisters’ gravesite at Elmwood Cemetery.

“You can always choose to take a different path. There are so many more roads than just those two. If you find yourself off track, or off the track you think you’re supposed to be following, that’s ok.” - Anna Traverse Fogle '02

It's always a treat for our Middle and Upper School students to hear from an alumna! We enjoyed having Anna Traverse Fogle '02 as our Alumnae Chapel speaker today. Anna’s former classmate Caroline Fourmy introduced her. Anna is the CEO of Contemporary Media, Inc., local publisher of Memphis magazine (of which she is also editor-in-chief), the Memphis Flyer, and Memphis Parent. Follow the link in our profile to the video from Anna’s talk.

African musician Ekpe Abioto recently visited The Power of Black Music in America class. He shared about the origins of the music we listen to today. Our students practiced rhythms using a wide variety of African percussion instruments. Mr. Abioto also shared life lessons as he talked about playing drums as a group. “Even if you forget what you’re supposed to be doing, someone else remembers. Listen to each other. We are dependent on each other,” he said.

This summer our sophomore students read Anne Moody's “Coming of Age in Mississippi.” The book emphasizes the role of local, ordinary people in the struggle for racial justice in the 1950s and '60s. The whole class visited the National Civil Rights Museum to see how these issues impacted our hometown of Memphis. Dalton Lyon, chair of the history department, said “My hope was that the students could see themselves as upstanders.” At St. Mary’s, our students learn the importance of having the courage to speak up for things that matter.

Our Story

St. Mary’s is the oldest independent school in Tennessee, and for over 170 years we have provided girls in Memphis with the finest education possible. Our story includes some of the earliest female leaders in Memphis, the (Episcopal) Sisters of St. Mary, who at their own peril cared for the Memphis community during the yellow fever epidemic of 1878. Their legacy of service and commitment to principles continues to inspire generations of St. Mary’s girls to become young women of integrity, compassion, and confidence.

Our Mission
The mission of St. Mary's Episcopal School is to provide a superior educational experience for girls which will encourage and enable each student to reach her individual potential.
