Mt. St. Mary Academy, the educational ministry of St. Patrick Parish, was established in 1859.
Our mission is to serve families primarily of the Catholic Communities of St. Patrick, St. Canice and St. Dominic as well as families of other faith traditions and surrounding communities.
Recognizing that parents are the primary educators of their children, we collaborate to educate our students to achieve their potential in the areas of faith development, academic excellence, social awareness and emotional growth.
We exist to inspire and motivate our students to recognize their call to be responsible, faith-filled leaders in the reality of today`s multicultural and diverse world.
Mount Saint Mary`s is the oldest continuously operating Catholic school west of the Mississippi. Founded in 1859, Mount Saint Mary`s is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, and proud of a fully credentialed faculty.
