One of the most important decisions you will make as a parent is determining where you child will attend school. Since 1898, St. Mary’s Parish School has taken seriously the responsibility of educating and forming leaders in a Catholic, comprehensive, college preparatory environment.
At the heart of St. Mary’s Parish School is our passion for excellence in all things. We believe that each student who attends our school will benefit from the quality of instruction they receive. Academically, a traditional curriculum infused with 21st-century skills will provide every student, from preschool – high school graduation, with the solid foundation necessary to excel at the next level of study.
Socially, St. Mary’s is a community built upon a foundation of kindness, acceptance, and integrity. It is a community in which each member looks out for the other, and the bonds of friendship that are formed here, last a lifetime.
Spiritually, students will broaden and deepen their understanding of the teachings of Jesus Christ and the beliefs of the Roman Catholic tradition. Additionally, through their study of religion, all students gain the tools to examine morality and justice in their lives and in the world. St. Mary’s students are young people who understand that faith is a lifelong journey of prayer, learning, and service, which broadens their perspective and leads toward ever deeper communion with God and others.
We are proud of the distinction that our students have received in all areas of academics, arts, athletics, and extra-curricular activities. Each year we recognize the success of our seniors as they receive hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships and continue their academic journeys across the nation at prestigious colleges and universities.
Over the past few years, we have embarked on several key initiates that have added to the success of St. Mary’s overall program and allowed us to thrive. We have been blessed with the financial ability to improve upon technology; introduce a 1:1 laptop program, increase electives in course of studies for our students, fully utilize the Virtual High School Collaborative thus allowing our students to take advantage of specialized courses outside of our traditional course offerings, and make upgrades to our facility.
It is our shared mission which makes our school a special place. Students, teachers, staff, and parents are motivated to strive to be our very best in order to attempt to fulfill the expectations of God to whom we have dedicated our lives. From our littlest learners to our seniors preparing for college, we are focused on developing all aspects of our students, including their spiritual, intellectual and physical well-being. If you are interested in joining our school family, I hope you will take the time to visit our campus and determine if God has called you to join our family.
This year, we welcomed the largest incoming class of freshman in nearly a decade. I encourage you to contact me and schedule an appointment if you are interested in enrolling your children. I would love the opportunity to provide you with a tour of our school, answer any questions you may have, and introduce you and your children to faculty, staff, and students, so that you may learn firsthand the loving relationships and dedication shared by our educators and students.
