St. Mary’s Catholic School
A Tradition of Excellence for over 135 Years!
St. Mary’s approach to education is to nurture students’ intellectual and spiritual potential, inspiring them to want to learn. We teach them logic, reason, and critical thinking, showing them how to learn; and hold up examples of good citizenship and moral and virtuous behavior, demonstrating why they learn.
Our curriculum is enhanced by the study of Latin which helps students acquire the building blocks of English and develop a more extensive vocabulary and a better command of English grammar, which leads to more effective reading, writing, and speaking, as well as the ability to quickly pick up other languages.
Classes are naturally integrated so students see the relationships between what they are currently learning in math or Latin, for example, and its relevance to what they have already learned in science or history. This natural integration gives students a greater understanding of their subjects and helps them to permanently mentally assimilate everything they learn.
Our athletic programs provide opportunities for each participant to develop the physical, spiritual, and social needs of each athlete. The core of each sports program strives to guide the individual to function as a member of a team – working to achieve a common goal.
St. Mary’s offers an exceptional Preschool for two, three and four year old children. Classes are offered 3 or 5 days a week. Children learn primarily through play; therefore, structured activities are coupled with free exploration at learning centers throughout the room. Their daily programs include math, science, social studies, language arts, reading, writing, art, computer, Spanish, religion and enrichment classes such as music, physical education, and library.
