In three short years students go from 6th grade to high school. The majority of IHM students continue their high school education at Mount Saint Mary Academy and Catholic High for Boys. Others have attended St. Joseph in Conway or Maumelle High. In either case, IHM prepares students to be successful at all locations. Our alumni are among the ranks that have made perfect ACT scores, top in their class, and overall good members of  our community.

JUNIOR HIGH 6TH - 8TH GRADES

We at IHM understand that 6th - 8th is not your typical Junior High levels, however, as part of the Diocese of Little Rock and a thorough understanding of the expectations of two of our local High Schools, we work to create an environment that builds student readiness for High School at Catholic High and Mount St. Mary's Academy.
