St. Mary's Catholic School strives to develop faith-filled, responsible citizens for our global community by providing a quality Catholic education which emphasizes academic success, self-discipline, and moral training, in a caring Christian environment.
Staff members at St. Mary's School are dedicated to the development of each individual student's potential.
The student will be taught both the cognitive and the affective skills needed to become effective citizens of the world.
The school assumes this responsibility in cooperation with the child's primary educators, the parents.
The school aims to educate intellectually, spiritually, morally, socially, emotionally, and physically.
The child will learn to discover knowledge for himself, to solve problems, to be a critical reader, to develop a healthy curiosity and to be open-minded.
The child will be encouraged to give witness to his faith by his own life.
Our aim is to form pupils with a social conscience, a desire for racial justice, compassion for those who suffer, and zeal for the common goal.
St. Mary's School is committed to quality education to meet the needs of the modern child.
