ENROLLING NOW: children ages 3 through Grade Five

Well-Rounded elementary education – developing the love of learning!

The purpose of St. Mary’s School is to provide opportunities for each child to develop his/her potential: spiritually, intellectually, socially, and emotionally, in a secure, caring and stimulating environment.

St. Mary’s is committed to teach the Gospel message of Christ; to build a community characterized by sharing, educating, and believing; and to serve through prayer, worship, and social action.

We believe each child is a unique individual with skills and talents that must be cultivated and needs that must be recognized and met. We are dedicated to excellence in education and to fostering an atmosphere of self-learning, critical thinking, responsible action, and peacemaking.

The school’s focus on religious education, high academic standards, and the celebration of spiritual and community values nurtures the development of a positive and productive approach to successfully meet the challenges of modern life.
