Our Mission  


The mission of our St. Mary’s community is to recognize and develop each child’s mind, body, and soul. 

We strive to do this by balancing our faith in Jesus Christ, challenging ourselves in the classroom, and becoming well-rounded citizens of our society.

Our Philosophy 


St. Mary’s School is committed to giving our students a solid academic and spiritual foundation rooted in the Catholic faith. We nurture the growth of the whole child ~ Mind, Body, and Soul.  This is achieved through our faith filled school community, together with the parents who are the primary educators of their children.  

We celebrate the many gifts and talents of our students, as well as the diversity of our community, church, and world. 

Professional teachers model life-long learning by providing challenging and contemporary academic programs, infused with the Gospel message of Christ.  As facilitators of learning, we strive to prepare our students to excel academically as they become critical thinkers, problem solvers, and effective communicators. We encourage our students to live their faith daily as reflective, contributing citizens in service to their church and to their global community.   

Our CHILDREN are the LEADERS of tomorrow.
