Welcoming Children of All Faiths Since 1878
“St. Mary’s felt like ‘home’ to me. The same way that I was able to pick my college. I love the respect I see in all the classrooms I visited.”
Inspired by Christ’s words, “I came that they may have life and have it to the full,” St. Mary’s Catholic School dedicates itself to the education of the whole child — spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, and physically — in a nurturing environment permeated by a Christ-centered atmosphere. Being fully aware of moral challenges posed by our culture, students are directed toward an unending pursuit of God in all that is true, good, and beautiful.

Parents, staff, alumni, parishioners and friends will gather in support of Jackson’s only elementary Catholic school and all funds raised will go towards the exceptional programs that contribute to St. Mary’s high educational standards.

Our reputation for outstanding academic achievement begins with day one in our Preschool Program. We recognize that children learn through play and meaningful experiences. Therefore, structured activities are coupled with free exploration at learning centers throughout the room. Learning centers reinforce the academic skills that are the main focus of learning each week. Preschool students enjoy enrichment classes of music, library, and physical education. Formal art is added in the first grade.
