Elevating Expectations
áá
Mount St. Mary Academy is a learning environment that is unique in Arkansas. As the only Catholic high school for young women in the state, we are devoted to the high standards of academic excellence and Christian values exemplified and taught by our school's founders, the Sisters of Mercy, over 160 years ago. Our supportive, yet challenging, all-girl environment provides a platform where girls can build confidence as they grow academically and spiritually, developing the skills that will help them navigate today's complex world.

When girls are expected to hold every position - scholars, artists, athletes and class leaders - they rise to the challenges set before them, consistently achieving in the classroom, the gymnasium, or the community. Nearly 100 percent of each Mount St. Mary Academyágraduating class goes on to pursue a college education, and equipped with a strong moral and intellectual foundation, our students are well prepared to meet the challenges of the future.

MSMáHoneyBellesáWin $25,000 Helping the Environment

TheáHoneyBelles, a team of six science and art students from Mount St. Mary Academy, advanced in March to win a $15,000 first place award in the Lexus Eco Challenge, a national contest that encourages middle and high school students to develop and implement environmental programs that positively impact their communities.
á
After carefully studying the local environment, theáHoneyBellesádeveloped an Action Plan. They created a pollinators habitat on the school campus to protect the dwindling bee population so vital to modern agriculture.áThey also started a composting system to help sustain the garden and began spreading awareness about the importance of bees to the greater community.

Sixteen teams in each challenge, including Mount St. Mary Academy, won $10,000 in grants and scholarships at the end of November. All the winning teams were invited to participate in the Final Challenge for a chance to win one of two $30,000 grand prizes and eight first place prizes of $15,000. In all, $500,000 in scholarships and grants was awarded, with a total of $25,000 awarded to Mount St. Mary Academy. á

The HoneyBelles plan to use the prize money to help fundraise for two organizations - The Bee Cause, a grant program aimed to educate young people about the importance of bees, and Bee Abroad, an organization that seeks to reduce poverty in developing countries throughout the world through beekeeping.
