The mission of St. Mary School is to provide our students a foundation in faith, academics, and service. We expect our students to be practicing critical thinkers and to demonstrate responsibility, compassion, and respect.

  • Student learning is the chief priority for the school.
  • Our school is preparing students to be good Catholics.
  • Each student is a valued individual with unique physical, social, emotional, and intellectual needs.
  • Teachers, administrators, parents and the community share the responsibility for advancing the school’s mission.
  • There is an expectation at this school that students and faculty live and practice Catholic values and benefits.
  • The commitment to continuous improvement is imperative if our school is going to enable students to become self-confident, self-directed, life-long learners.
