Student body profile

We are a community of learners, working, having fun and growing together. When you become a Saint, you join something larger, something stronger. You join a community.


St. Scholastica has been a great place for me. I have so many mentors who have challenged me and helped me find new opportunities. They encouraged me to pursue internships, supported my independent studies and encouraged me to take part in conferences and competitions.
