Student Stories

“I loved St. Mary’s Ryken for many reasons. The scenery here is beautiful. I was able to enjoy nature while I walked around the campus which is a rare opportunity compared to where I am from in South Korea. And, I also enjoyed the academic rigor and flexibility at SMR. I was enrolled in the STEM Scholars Program pathway but also took art classes, which is a freedom that most high schoolers won’t experience back at home.”

Josh Kim, ('19)

Josh currently attends Johns Hopkins University. While at SMR, he was the co-captain of the robotics team and enrolled in the STEM Scholars Program
