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.

Young children learn primarily through play and meaningful experiences. The Preschool classrooms consist of whole group instruction, individualized instruction, and hands-on learning. Learning centers reinforce academic skills that are taught each week. Students enrich their learning experience through Library, P.E., and Music classes.
