Welcome to Walsingham Academy


Walsingham Academy Is A Distinguished Catholic Christ-Centered Community For Academic Excellence

Welcome to Walsingham Academy and thank you for your interest. Please browse our website to learn more about the exciting educational and extra-curricular opportunities we offer students in grades prekindergarten through twelfth grade.

Discover what it means to be a student at Walsingham Academy—an independent, Catholic, college preparatory school, founded by the Sisters of Mercy in 1947 and steeped in a long standing tradition of academic excellence.  Walsingham is a strong community of individual students, faculty, parents and alumni dedicated to celebrating a love of learning, commitment to the values of Christian citizenship, and the responsible expression of talent and ideas.

We hope that once you have explored our website, you will visit the campus and experience Walsingham Academy first-hand. We host a number of Admissions events throughout the year that allow for the opportunity to tour the camps and meet the faculty, students, and administration. Prospective students are encouraged to shadow a Student Ambassador, attend classes, and spend a day on campus.

Admission to Walsingham Academy is selective with consideration given to the applicant’s past academic performance, teacher recommendations, test scores, entrance exam, and personal interview. Although metrics are an important part of the process, we seek to not simply qualify a student by a test score; instead, we strive to get to know our applicants as individuals with unique characteristics, strengths, interests, and contributions to the community.  Building a unique and talented student body creates an environment where education does not end when the bell rings.

Accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and the National Catholic Education Association, Walsingham offers the opportunity of admission to all academically qualified students without regard to religion, race, gender, or national origin.

We welcome you to visit with us and learn more about Walsingham Academy.  For further information about our process, please contact our Office of Admissions or submit your inquiry online.

We look forward to your visit and to introducing you to Walsingham Academy.
