Admissions

Welcome

Rich in history and traditions, St. Cecilia Academy is Nashville's oldest continuously operating high school and has provided an all girls college preparatory environment since 1860. Students are welcomed into a dynamic, faith-filled, academic experience that cultivates the intellect and challenges students to become critical thinkers and lifelong learners.

At St. Cecilia Academy, we have faith in each student and believe that each girl has unique gifts and talents that are meant to be discovered and developed. Our girls are eager to discover why God made them and what they are meant to do. Our educational philosophy encourages confidence in young women who understand that success in life derives from joy in both learning and sharing the fruits of that learning with others.

We look forward to meeting you soon!
