Mission

St. Mary School provides all students a quality, Catholic education rooted in faith, dedicated to academic excellence, and committed to service.

Vision

St. Mary School seeks to accelerate student achievement by providing an unmatched education where students are taught 22nd century skills in preparation for their future. While staying true to our Catholic faith, we strive to become a leading next generation school, offering an integrated STEM program, focused on preparing future leaders with the character, commitment, innovation, and grit to impact a world where bioengineering will play an increasingly important role.

Philosophy

St. Mary School students are immersed in a Christ-centered learning environment, grounded in the Catholic faith, which supports the development of the whole child; spiritually, intellectually, physically, socially, and emotionally. We acknowledge parents as the primary educators of their children and we partner with parents to provide an outstanding Catholic education. We encourage students to develop their God-given talents by fostering an atmosphere of dignity and respect for all. Students have multiple opportunities to grow in their faith through liturgical celebrations, prayer services, sacramental preparation, daily prayer, retreats and service projects. Teachers and parents model Gospel values in class and around campus for students to witness faith in action. Our rigorous curriculum encourages critical thinking and problem solving skills for students to apply the knowledge learned in class and to promote lifelong learning. Students are taught responsible digital citizenship through the use of technology embedded throughout our curriculum.
