Our campus is located on 44 spacious acres in Jenkintown, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. The Academy was founded by the Order of the Sisters of Saint Basil the Great in 1931, with the strong desire and goal to build the minds of leaders through service and compassion.

Saint Basil Academy provides a college preparatory curriculum for students in grades 9 through 12, which will prepare the girls for the challenges they will face both in college and the world.

We welcome you to continue to peruse our website, to learn about the curriculum, read about the highlights of the many clubs, activities and our championship sport teams.


Shadow Day

SBA invites seventh and eighth-grade students to experience an Academy Day at SBA. Guided by a current SBA student, you will observe challenging classes, experience strong Catholic values, and witness the personal and caring environment of our Academy.

We are currently offering a Special Shadow Day experience for seventh-grade students to experience and observe in subjects that match their interests.
