  • St. Mary Catholic School is a vital and valued ministry within the evangelizing mission of St. Mary's Parish of Riverside and its neighboring suburbs, and of the global Catholic community.

  • The mission of St. Mary School is to provide the children of St. Mary's parish family with a firm foundation in the Catholic faith, traditions, and moral values; and to prepare them to become well-educated Catholic adults who will provide leadership and service within the church and society in the 21st century.
  • St. Mary is a very special community in which teachers and administrators are united and work in harmony with parents, who we recognize as the primary educators.
  • It is a partnership that is dedicated to the full realization of each child`s spiritual, academic, and life skills potential.
