Grades: K - 9 | 224 students
Saint Mary School is a PreK-8 Catholic school serving the communities of Gloucester City under the direction of the Diocese of Camden. Following the tradition of the Sisters of Saint Dominic, Saint Mary School of the Diocese of Camden is a Christian community dedicated to serving others as did Jesus, the Master Teacher. We call our students and their families to be public witnesses to the Word of God by living their faith as responsible Christian people in an ever-changing world. We offer the school community daily opportunities to strengthen their personal relationship with Jesus and with each other through prayer and worship. We recognize the importance of the family as the primary unit in the education of children. We strive to provide a balanced academic program of study which incorporates technology, artistic expression, and basic skills needed for the spiritual, intellectual, social, and physical development of the whole child. We recognize the individual talents and potential of every student by encouraging each child to develop and share their God-given gifts for the betterment of themselves, their community, and the world they will enter as Christian adults. We believe that our classroom teachers should serve as role models by facilitating a constructivist learning process that promotes the active participation of every child.
