Shattuck-St. Mary’s School, fondly referred to as SSM, welcomes both day and boarding students in grades 6 through 12 and post graduates. I am pleased you are interested in our school, and I look forward to helping you learn more about what SSM has to offer you.

SSM students benefit from a challenging college preparatory curriculum that blends tradition with innovation. At the same time, our students have the opportunity to pursue their personal passions through SSM’s Centers of Excellence in Bioscience, Engineering, Figure Skating, Golf, Hockey, Soccer, Pre-Conservatory Music, and Vocal Performance.

SSM has so much to offer students as they prepare for and build towards their own exceptional futures. I encourage you to come visit our campus and learn more about our school community so that you may experience firsthand the many opportunities available here. I look forward to meeting you!
