Meet Our Remarkable People

Be Remarkable exemplifies Salem Academy’s commitment to helping girls achieve life-changing remarkability by developing a collaborative character and genuine skills in persistence, self-confidence, and adaptability.

Meet Miracle

When Miracle Etim-Andy A’19 and her family were touring high schools, they were in search of a challenging and nourishing place; and they found it at Salem Academy.

On every other Tuesday, there will be another story profile of a remarkable student, alumna, faculty or staff member featured on this page. Be sure to subscribe to Salem Academy’s YouTube channel to get notifications when a new Be Remarkable video is released.

Meet Catherine

Catherine Ward (A’14) grew up in New Bern, North Carolina, and as she was finishing middle school, she began investigating academic opportunities beyond her eastern NC hometown.  When she was 13, Catherine toured Salem Academy and recalls being impressed by the students she met.
