Welcome to Stella Maris Academy

Comprised of campuses throughout Duluth, Stella Maris Academy was commissioned by the Catholic Church to   prepare lifelong learners who lead, love, and serve as Jesus taught – transforming our world one student at a time. 

Stella Maris Academy guides students through Christ-centered intellectual, spiritual, human and stewardship formation. Paramount to this is a personal relationship with Jesus and a community of support in family members, teachers, staff, pastors and community members. Students discover their God-given talents and passions, which lead them to meaningful and fulfilling vocations. Students learn in an environment imbued with Catholic faith and intellectual tradition alongside modern approaches that serve them well into the future. Students seek and find truth, developing key problem solving and critical thinking skills. Through our dynamic, engaging, vibrant and inspiring environment, our students carry with them virtues of fortitude, perseverance and temperance and become witnesses of wisdom and peace.
