Frequently Asked Questions
Where/When can I schedule a tour of the school?
Please call the school at 740-382-1607 to schedule a tour, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are glad to show your family the building and introduce you to some of our staff.
What is the cost of tuition, and how do families pay?
Tuition for the 2022-2023 school year begins at 5500.00 for a single student that does not participate in the parish. Families are encouraged to pay through the FACTS tuition system, but we accept other methods.
How large are the classes?
St. Mary School offers small class sizes of 16 or fewer, which allows each child to get individual focus and attention. Many of our classrooms have aides or tutors working with the teachers, making our staff/student ratio quite low.
Are there sports and activities?
For the 2022-2023 school year, St. Mary School is reintroducing athletics. We are working on structuring the program, and more details will be available soon.
Is there transportation for my child?
Each of the 5 major districts (Marion, Ridgedale, Elgin, Pleasant, River Valley) buses students to our school. We will work with your family to find transportation solutions.
Are non-Catholic children welcomed?
Absolutely! In fact, St. Mary School serves a large amount of non-Catholic students. Families in Marion choose us not just for our commitment to our faith, but for our strong discipline and academics. Non-Catholic families are welcomed in our school, and provide a quality education to all.
