Our children have grown in their faith and received an outstanding academic education at St. Mary on the Hill Catholic School. The teachers care about the students and motivate them to do their best. Upon graduating from St. Mary's, our son was very prepared for the tough curriculum at Aquinas High School. We anticipate the same success for our daughter when she goes to Aquinas. Thank you St. Mary's for all you do!

Ours is a small, private Catholic school with children who take their education seriously and parents that are involved in the school culture and our children's lives. St. Mary's has state-of-the-art equipment in every classroom and our teachers use it daily. Our teachers are well-educated and participate in continuing education, which, as an educator myself, I appreciate. The "Catholicity" of our school is evident in everything we do, but we have students who are not Catholic who feel just as at home at St. Mary's. I cannot imagine sending my children to any other school in the Augusta area.
