St. Mary School is a great gift to the parishes and community of Hagerstown as well as to the Church of Baltimore.
We endeavor to educate the whole child in an atmosphere where the student may experience living and learning in the light of the Catholic faith.
St. Mary encourages the students to become sensitive to the needs of others in our parishes, local community, and the world.
We provide opportunities for response to this Christian awareness through service.
Ever mindful of the glory of God's creation, we guide the students as they grow in appreciation of human dignity and diversity.
St. Mary strives for excellence in academics as well as guidance in spiritual growth.
Since Catholic education encompasses every area of a child's development, St. Mary is concerned also with the physical and emotional development of each of its students.
St. Mary has its own school cafeteria which provides a nutritious, hot lunch daily at a reasonable cost for the students.
