St. Mary's School

The Sisters of Charity from Cincinnati and the Jesuit Fathers of Immaculate Conception Parish opened Saint Mary's Catholic School in September 1863.
Saint Mary's School is a Faith Community, that works to build and nurture the students' total development.
The philosophy underlying the educational process at Saint Mary's School is based on the recognition that God is our origin and destiny.
Therefore, our educational mission is that of the church, "embracing three interlocking dimension: the message revealed by God which the church proclaims; fellowship in the life of the Holy Spirit; service to the Christian community and the entire human community." The total development of a person calls for transformation of oneself and society with God's help.
