Our families came from Catholic schools. We are not bound by tradition to do the same but we believe in Catholic education. It is still relevant to the times. My son has been doing great academically. St Mary Academy taught him emotional intelligence as well. For Lent, he will donate his $20 after his dad challenged him to do 10000 steps in 12 days. He will give it to Uganda so kids can have water. My son looks forward to school every day.

We have two sons who attend St. Mary Academy since preK-3 and we would not choose another school. They are thriving in 2nd and 6th grades, thanks to the dedicated staff, quality education, low student:teacher ratio, faith based learning with a strong focus on STREAM and technology. Both of my boys have learned coding and are very active in the athletics and music program. They are devleoping leadership qualities at a young age yet still interact as normal kids. The tution is the best investment we have ever made in our children. I highly recommend St. Mary Academy.

This is my son's first year at St. Mary Academy and in a Catholic school. He is in third grade and is thriving academically and socially. He has developed new found leadership skills and has the confidence now to speak at mass, sing at church, play the piano, and audition for the school play. His participation in these programs as well as his interest in soccer, basketball, and swimming are helping to create a happy, well-rounded child. I'm grateful to the teachers and administrators at St. Mary Academy.

My son has been attending St. Mary Academy for 4 years. I wouldn't put my son in any other school. He learns respect, religion, and most importantly gets the benefit of an amazing education with loving staff who have become like family. He most importantly is happy, and I feel comfortable with the level of care he receives from his teachers and staff.

SMA is an extension of our family and our family values. The principal, teachers and staff are fantastic! They all truly love and care about each and every student. Love the teacher to student ratio. Our son has developed from a shy little boy to a confident young man. The academics are excellent, especially the STREAM and Spanish program. I am amazed daily with the content of knowledge students learn and develop upon. Tons of extracurricular activities such as cross-country, wrestling, basketball, volleyball, track, music lessons and performing arts. Great school community that have now become our family. I highly recommend this school to anyone who is looking for a solid academic foundation built on the Catholic values and traditions.

All Saints Regional Catholic School produces leaders with Christian values. The atmosphere is more like a family than an institution and both the children and the teachers treat each other with great respect. I am very satisfied with my son's level of education and the peace of mind I get having him attend this school. Best of all, he looks forward to attending every day.

Sending your child to a single-sex school is one of several options you have when it comes to private schools.
Each state sets its own teacher certification requirements. While many private schools do not require you to be certified, it is in your best interests to obtain certification. This article includes contact information for state education offices so you can begin the process.
Marketing the small private school can be done affordably and effectively. We suggest five easy steps to make that happen.
