Established originally as a small, private high school in response to the need for educational and spiritual development of young women in Jamaica, the School has made significant strides in curriculum development, in co-curricular activities and service clubs, in Sports, Elocution and Drama, and in Fine Arts.
Although the enrollment today numbers upwards of 1300 students, all the young women at the Academy are comfortably accommodated. This is due, in part, to the building expansion programme that has taken place over the many years that the school has been in existence. But over and above and through all that is accomplished at the High School, it is the personal and spiritual development of the young women, who are encouraged to grow in knowledge and appreciation of their innate dignity, beauty and worth, of their power to influence others for good, and of their Ministry to share with others, that is the significant focus. It is by embracing these qualities that they embody the motto of their school: “Ad Verum et Bonum”.
