Fontbonne Academy is a secondary school for young women sponsored by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston. Founded upon a Catholic, Western intellectual and spiritual tradition, today Fontbonne welcomes students of all faiths as they prepare for life in a global community.
For each student, the goal upon graduation is that she will have discovered the true reach of her abilities and be thoroughly prepared for higher learning, with foundational skills and knowledge to support high academic achievement in a college curriculum; she will have had spiritual experience and education that open her to the world heritage of humankind's search for God; and she will have had a social experience and education in a diverse community that prepares her to live and work among peoples of many cultures.
Fontbonne's academic program, co-curricular activities, and daily life seek to instill in young women qualities of leadership, intellectual openness, social connection, and spiritual strength that will support the widest range of personal and professional choices they might make. We believe our education confers as its highest attainments wisdom and grace to live fully and courageously in a challenging world.
