Our Mission

Marymount Academy Internationalis located in Notre Dame de Grace and currently houses 500 students and 25 teachers. The building is situated in close proximity to the Villa Maria Metro station and is easily accessible via the 103, 162, 24, and 66 bus routes. As a result the majority of our youth arrive at school using public transit and this is also an advantage for school outings and community engagement activities. While the majority of students come from surrounding areas, a smaller number come from farther afield. Due to the school’s location it welcomes youth from a variety of socio-economic, cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Twenty-eight percent of MMA students report a language other than English and French being spoken at home, and 18% were born outside Canada.

Marymount High School was founded in 1961, under the direction of the Montreal Catholic School Commission, offering programs for boys and girls at its original location, 6300 Cote St. Luc Road. In 1970, the gender-based programs were unified under the name Marymount Comprehensive High School. In 1984 the unified school was relocated to 5100 Cote St. Luc Road and was given its present name Marymount Academy International. A compulsory school uniform was instituted in 1990-91, and the International Baccalaureate Program was established in 1996-97. A music program was instituted in 2003.
