SPARC was designed to bring out the best in our students. We will focus on developing balance in your mental, physical, emotional, and social health.  


SPARC students are passionate and driven, they're willing to make mistakes and get messy in the learning process and they ask big questions to drive their learning.

SPARC offers students a truly unique learning experience fostering whole-girl development, real-world learning, and enriched experiences in both academic and co-curricular programming. It will enable our students to plan, monitor, and assess their understanding and performance, including a critical awareness of their thinking and learning.

Built by the Sisters of St. Joseph in 1956, Marymount College established itself as Sudbury's only all-girls' Catholic school. In 1999, Marymount College evolved and became Marymount Academy, extending its programming to Grades 7-12. Throughout its history, Marymount has been known for a long-standing tradition of excellence, female empowerment, and community leadership.
