St. Mary Cathedral Elementary School
St. Mary's Elementary School works in partnership with families, the community, and the Church to provide a nurturing environment for students in kindergarten through grade three.
The school is a center where teachers and staff, in cooperation with families, guide the child's early development in faith, academics and self-esteem.
St. Mary's School accomplishes this by instructing the children in Catholic doctrine, preparing them for liturgies and the reception of the sacraments, and providing opportunities to live their faith; developing the child's potential by offering an academic curriculum strong in the the fundamental skills with attention given to individual needs; and assisting children to grow in self-esteem and self-discipline within an environment based on mutual love, respect, and parental support.
