Thank you for visiting our website and for taking the time to learn a bit about our school and our students, or to renew your connection, if you are an alumna or former student.
Saint Vincent Academy is a very special place. For more than 140 years, her light has shone here at the top of West Market Street in the city of Newark, illuminating for generations the path to successful, productive lives as caring women, as professionals in many walks of life, and as mothers, daughters and sisters. Saint Vincent Academy has been blessed by God with the privilege and responsibility of living the mission Jesus Christ gave to mankind and womankind alike – to teach, to love, and to serve.
As the only private, college preparatory high school for young women in Newark, the Academy plays a singular role in the community. We strive to provide our students with the educational tools and moral compass they need to succeed in college and in life and to overcome with perseverance and grace the obstacles faced by women and people of color in our society. We combine a rigorous academic program with high expectations and the support of a caring community of dedicated teachers and staff.
