For bright, motivated young women, Salem Academy is more than a school—it's the beginning of possible.
Since 1772, Salem Academy in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, has focused solely on educating young women. Our Moravian founders believed that a first-class education could make a profound impact on a young woman's life, and that belief lives on today as a hallmark of a Salem Academy education.
Small class settings, college-level facilities, and a blend of classic and modern teaching methods give students the tools to master every subject. Our liberal arts and sciences curriculum challenges and inspires, building the foundation students need to excel at the nation's top colleges and universities.
Salem's faculty serves an important role in students' lives. As mentors, champions, and advisors, they ignite brilliance and help students to find and follow their unique talents and passions.
While a Salem education is elite, our culture is not elitist. We've created a caring community where young women are encouraged to embark on their own intellectual, spiritual, and social journeys. As an all-girls school, Salem gives each student the freedom to mature at her own pace and explore new interests in a supportive environment.
The triumphant Salem graduate emerges ready for the future, equipped with the skills and confidence to succeed in anything she pursues.
