Tuition Notes
We understand that funding your child’s education often requires sacrifices, and sometimes, families do not think that a Catholic, private education is possible because of the cost. We never want the cost of a Catholic education to prohibit a student from attending. Therefore, we have many financial assistance and scholarship opportunities available for our students!

Saint Mary School is wonderful. The school is filled with loving children, parents, faculty, and staff. We are blessed to have Miss Walton as our Principal and grateful for her leadership!

I have taught at this school for many years and am proud to be a part of its 150 year history. The current faculty and staff is the hardest working, most committed group of educators I have had the privilege to know. All of them have had teaching experience prior to coming to our school, and thus contribute to a diverse and vibrant collegial environment. They expend enormous energy, enthusiasm, and effort to provide our students with a high quality Catholic education and strong spiritual formation. This commitment to St. Mary is shared by the many families who have chosen to place their children in our care, and who have high expectations of our school and staff.
