At St. Mary's School, our mission is to provide a balanced, quality education to all children and to help them develop an attitude of sharing the light of Christ with all.
St. Mary's School is a community of faith and is committed to Catholic education and the formation of Christian beliefs, traditions and values.
We believe in listening to the Word of God, gaining strength from the Word of God, and being empowered through the Word of God to witness and give service to God's people.
As a community of believers we convey to the world the love of Jesus and witness with hope to the future.
Our purpose is to provide an environment conducive to learning, and thereby to educate each student in those aspects that touch a child's life: spiritual, academic, aesthetic, social, and physical.
We view learning as an opportunity to continually explore and expand the horizon of knowledge.
Each student is equipped with skills and fortified by Christian values to face the challenges of life.
