For more than a century, St. Vincent’s Academy has continued the tradition of providing a rigorous academic and religious program that is tailored to the needs of our students and prepares them for higher education.


The tradition of excellence in athletics is an important part of life at St. Vincent’s Academy. SVA teams consistently rank among the best in state competition. Our students can choose to participate in more than ten different sports.

Student Life

We believe strongly that a complete education includes experiences outside of academics. St. Vincent’s Academy offers a variety of clubs and service activities to allow our students to explore their interests and give back to the community.


Testimonial - Marge Hart

St. Vincent’s Academy is the best gift my parents ever gave me!  Sister Gilmary, Sister Michael Mary, Sister Bridget, Peg Dressel  and other teachers taught me more than just math, English and reading! They taught me to embrace my spirituality, serve my community and work towards a world where everyone is treated with love and respect. Over 35 years later, those are still the guiding principles for my life. I love SVA!

Testimonial - Elizabeth Buttimer

What impresses me most about SVA is the generations of women who have walked through the iron gates. Between my family, the Buttimer and Iocovozzi’s, there are 30 women who have graduated. What a marvelous feeling to know so many, like me, enjoyed and benefited from the many traditions that make St. Vincent’s so special. The Sisters of Mercy and teachers have also continued the tradition of loyalty to SVA.

I am so proud to be a part of a strong Savannah Catholic tradition and to call myself a St. Vincent’s Academy alumnae. St. Vincent’s has taught me to be the best person I can be, to give back when I can and most importantly, how to be a strong leader. I will forever be grateful to the Sisters of Mercy and all the teachers who have been instrumental in shaping my life and the lives of so many women leaders.
