  • St. Mary School is affiliated with St. Peter Parish in Mt. Clemens.  Our student body comes from a wide variety of local communities which include New Baltimore, Chesterfield, Macomb, Washington, Clinton Twp., Harrison Twp. Fraser, Sterling Heights and Mt. Clemens.  The vast majority of our student population comes from north of M-59.  Academic excellence in a strong Catholic Faith-filled setting has been our tradition for over 140 years at St. Mary School.  Today we continue to offer that same outstanding educational and Faith-filled experience that has been the key to the success of our student body.  Our students go on to the best private Catholic high schools and public high schools in the area.  Our alumni high school graduation rate is100%, with the same college acceptance rate straight from high school.  We are very proud of our community of Faith and educational excellence which lives on in our students well after they graduate from the 8th Grade!

School Reviews

  • Recommended September 23, 2013 - This school is part of our family! My kids view their classmates as brother and sisters! St. Mary not only developes our four children academically (mind), but their heart and souls! We''ve been driving 23 miles one way for ten years! And my family doesn''t regret one mile. Our sports program and after school clubs just add to the beauty of this school! - Posted by Parent
