St. Scholastica's Academy of Marikina (SSAM, SSA Marikina or colloquially St. Scho Marikina) is a private school exclusively for girls located at Marikina. It was founded in 1961 in response to the appeal of the alumnae of St. Scholastica's College Manila who resided in Quezon City, Marikina, Pasig, and other neighbouring communities, for a Catholic school in the vicinity where their children could go.

Then owner of Marikina Heights Subdivision Mr. Jose Tuason, Sr. offered the lot to the Benedictine sisters of Tutzing at a very low price. The people who were given a direct hand in overseeing the construction were Sister Silvana, OSB, Mother Sub-Prioress of the Missionary Benedictine Sisters of Tutzing in the Philippines, Architect Imelda Borromeo Cancio and Project and Structural Engineer Ben Abastillas. Construction of the first phase of the physical plant followed immediately.

The pioneering sisters were Sister Eleonora Engelbrecht, OSB, Superior together with Sister Irmengardis Kuhn, OSB, Sister Joaquina Santos, OSB and Sister Andrea Yllana, OSB who opened classes in June 5, 1961 with only 62 pupils including young boys. Not to forget is Cardinal Rufino J. Santos who blessed the school on August 15, 1961 together with Cardinal Bishop Antiporda. Guests were Ambassador Von Fuerstenberg of Germany, Dr. Winternitz, representative of the Austrian Embassy and the priests and religious, alumnae, students and friends.

Until 1985, the school offered kindergarten which also admitted boys.
