About

Since 1845, St. Vincent’s Academy has been educating Savannah’s young women in the tradition of America’s finest Catholic learning institutions.

Our school, located in the heart of historic Savannah, offers students in grades 9-12 a program centered on academics and values designed to foster intellectual and personal growth and prepare them for higher education and careers in today’s society. We are proud to have a 100% college acceptance rate. Following the tradition and spirit of Catherine McAuley and the Sisters of Mercy, we also encourage our students to serve their community and become leaders in their areas of interest, both in and out of the classroom. We have been accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools since 1961.

SVA's New Administrative Model

The board of directors of St. Vincent’s Academy unanimously voted to adopt the president/principal administrative structure beginning in the 2019-2020 school year.

This model falls in line with other Mercy secondary schools.

 

Mrs. Mary Anne Hogan has been chosen by the SVA board of directors to blaze the trail as the first president of St. Vincent’s Academy. For the last decade, Mrs. Hogan has initiated and implemented advances in facilities, curriculum, marketing, development, student life, communications, and professional development. As SVA enters its 175th year of educating young women, Mrs. Hogan will continue her leadership and innovation as president of St. Vincent’s Academy.

 

After an international, national, and local search, Ms. Dawn Odom was named principal of St. Vincent’s Academy beginning with the 2019-2020 school year.

 

Ms. Odom’s service to St. Vincent’s Academy, the Sisters of Mercy, and Mercy Education began almost two decades ago. Her experience as a teacher and award-winning director of athletics serves her well in her role as principal.

 

Mrs. Hogan and Ms. Odom continue to look forward to a bright and promising future for the students and faculty at SVA.
