The Value of Saint Mary's

College is a true investment, and we know a Saint Mary’s College investment is a smart one. We have a 178-year history of empowering students to excel and lead in their chosen fields. Our graduates develop the skills, knowledge, empathy, and vision to guide their corner of the world forward, whether directing a global organization, serving the needs of humanity, or exploring areas of scientific discovery. We're proud of these women and celebrate their results. And we tell their stories because we know it's our story. A story of academic excellence and value. In fact, U.S. News & World Report once again named us a top Best Value School for National Liberal Arts Colleges.

If you want to measure the value of an education, there is no better place to start than employment results. Graduates of Saint Mary’s are quickly employed, make significantly more money than both male and female graduates nationally, and feel well prepared for their careers.
