Educating, Inspiring, & Transforming Young Women 

-- In The Greater Wilmington Area --

Our Mission

Serviam Girls Academy is a tuition-free, independent Catholic middle school in the Ursuline tradition for young women of all faiths from low-income families. Serviam empowers students to succeed in high school and become leaders who serve their families and the needs of society through a dynamic academic program and the development of the whole person in an atmosphere of respect and responsibility.

Educating, Inspiring, & Transforming

Since 2008

Our History

Serviam Girls Academy is part of a 45 year tradition of providing a high quality middle school education to adolescents with great potential but with limited resources. Part of a NativityMiguel network, and steeped in the Ursuline tradition, Serviam was founded on the premise that the community would invest in an education that allows every child the opportunity to reach her full potential.

An Innovative Education

Extended Day

Innovative education demands creative approaches to engage the learner. A Serviam education is characterized by a full 10-hour day, from breakfast through core classes, including daily gym class, to homework hour, clubs and athletics; students are inspired to learn.

Hands On Learning

An Exceptional Education

Serviam Girls Academy is the only private, tuition-free school for girls from low-income families in Delaware. Serviam’s mission is to provide a private school, quality education to 60 underserved middle school girls in grades 5-8. Small classes (12-18 students) are intentionally designed to foster a strong, nurturing community and allow for individualized attention.


Long-Term Success

Graduate Support Program

Serviam Girls Academy, committed to ensuring the long-term success of our students, provides a Graduate Support Program designed to lay the foundation for our students to attend and graduate from college preparatory high schools and then colleges. The program also facilitates access to a network of peers and adults that provide them support as they strive to lead successful lives.
