Saint Basil Academy is a treasure for young women. It is located in Jenkintown, PA and is founded in the Eastern Catholic spirit of Saint Basil the Great.

At Saint Basil Academy every young woman who walks our halls is a member of our family. She is nurtured and cared for as she is simultaneously brought to her fullest potential.

We educate

We educate the girls who join our school family. The faculty is committed to excellence and entrusted to impart far more than knowledge. They meet each young woman where she is academically and using her innate strengths and abilities they lead her to an academic base that will provide open doors of possibility for her future.

We empower

We empower the women we educate, with a voice to speak clearly their truth, a mind prepared to challenge and be challenged, and a heart and soul, firmly rooted in Catholic values bringing good moral instinct and compassion to their lives and families.

We enlighten

We englighten the world. Our graduates change our world! They are doctors, lawyers, businesswomen, philanthropists, explorers, mothers, scientists, entrepreneurs. Our graduates bring wisdom, insight, academic accomplishment, compassion and most of all hearts filled with hope to their lives; in doing so, they improve the lives of all those they meet.

Browse these pages, meet our girls, investigate our programs, but remember these pages can only capture a snapshot of life at Saint Basil Academy. Please feel free to come and meet the girls, share our life, see the amazing wonder that is a Saint Basil Academy education.
