Why St. Mary's?

St. Mary’s offers a rich educational experience fully integrated within the wisdom, tradition, and values of the Roman Catholic Church.

Our students attend a variety of high schools, both public and private, and have experienced great success upon graduation from St. Mary’s. This success is a testament to the high quality of the educational program at St. Mary’s and is a positive reflection on the families of our school community. At St. Mary’s, we have created a culture of learning and moral responsibility that we are confident will serve our students throughout their lives.

We invite you to come by for a visit and to see our students, talk with our faculty, and look more closely at our academic program. 

It Takes a Big Heart to Help Shape Little Minds!

St. Mary's has the best team of all, teachers and staff together make a well oiled machine that keeps our school moving forward.

Our dedicated teachers work hard each day to provide our students with the education they deserve. Our teachers understand each student's unique gifts and help them achieve their goals by nurturing both their minds and souls.

We invite you to visit each class to learn more about our teachers and our programs. Visit our school's classes.

School Supplies Made Easier!

Hey Parents,

I know it's hard to think about school supply shopping while this school year is still going. That is why we are so excited to be working with 1st Day School Supplies! This year get all your school supplies hassle free from the comfort of your own home. Take a moment to visit our school store at on their website. Deadline to order is July 1st!!

Not only do their boxes have exactly what the teachers asked for, but on top of that they are offering all the accessories we need! They offer Vera Bradley, JanSport, and Under Armour backpacks, lunch boxes and water bottles!
