Celebrating Salem's 250th Anniversary

In 1772, Salem Academy and College was founded on the revolutionary idea that girls and women deserve a rigorous education to prepare them to lead the way for a better world.   Over the last 250 years, Salem has built upon this foundation and pushed boundaries for women, empowering them to be leaders by preparing girls and women from all around the world to affect change, shatter expectations, and lead through the challenges and triumphs of their times.

It is with great excitement and gratitude that we announce the year-long celebration to commemorate the 250th Anniversary of Salem Academy and College.  Throughout the 2021-2022 academic year we will celebrate in many ways including opportunities to engage in inclusive reflections on our history and honoring the resilience, contributions, and experiences of those who paved the way.

We will honor our past as fuel to IGNITE our future.
