Tel: (708)442-5747
Grades: K-9 | 420 students
St. Mary Catholic School is a vital and valued ministry within the evangelizing mission of St. Mary's Parish of Riverside and its neighboring suburbs, and of the global Catholic community.
Believing that each student is a child of God, St. Mary School challenges each to achieve academic excellence, to embrace the gospel message, and to make a difference in the world through Christian witness, service, and leadership.
The mission of St. Mary School is to provide the children of St. Mary's parish family with a firm foundation in the Catholic faith, traditions, and moral values; and to prepare them to become well-educated Catholic adults who will provide leadership and service within the church and society in the 21st century.
St. Mary’s is a very special community in which teachers and administrators are united and work in harmony with parents, who we recognize as the primary educators.
It is a partnership that is dedicated to the full realization of each child’s spiritual, academic, and life skills potential.
At home and at school, together we endeavor to integrate God’s message into the children’s daily activities and encourage them to embrace the meaning of social concern and service to others.
