St Mary's Catholic School
- Under the protection of Jesus and the Blessed Mother, and guided by the Holy Spirit, St. Mary's Catholic School is a faith-centered academic community that strives to form the hearts, minds and souls of our students in the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Catholic Faith.
- To this end we endeavor to: keep Christ as our central focus, thereby developing a strong relationship with God and a genuine love of God and others; guide students to develop to their highest potential to become constructive Catholic leaders as American citizens; work in strong partnership with parents, the first educators; and provide a safe and nurturing environment that will develop the whole child, spiritually and academically.
