The mission of St. Mary's Catholic School of Metamora integrates excellence in academics with strong Christian values.
We do this in unison with spiritual leaders, committed faculty and staff, supportive parents, and our students, so that we provide an environment of continued growth in knowledge and faith.
We provide for mastery of faith formation, basic skills, excellence in academics, and participation in and an appreciation of the fine arts.
Our aim is not only to supplement religious training of children in the home, but more immediately, to provide a climate which enables them to experience Jesus Christ in real life experiences of church, classroom, and school activities.
Thus, they are given the opportunity to develop and integrate Christian values in their everyday living under the guidance of spiritual leaders--a committed faculty and staff working in unison with supportive parents.
By providing an outstanding educational program within an atmosphere of Christian faith, we encourage and assist children in the development of their own unique potentials, and to become whole persons—their own persons and truly Christian—directed by the attitudes and actions of Jesus Christ.
