St. Mary School

Saint Mary School provides a learning environment where Catholic faith and academic knowledge meet; grow into respect, understanding, wisdom and compassion, and are demonstrated in service to others.
Our goals are: religious training will provide for faith and moral instruction as defined in Catholic doctrine and character development as reflected in Christian values; academic program will provide for a thinking curriculum, integrating technology and the fine arts with challenging standards that allow every student to develop his/her potential; and community service will provide for an opportunity to give witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and make a positive difference in the community in which they live.

I am a alumni to this school and we sent our daughter here out of choice. We recently moved and will miss these teachers beyond belief. The Catholic upbringing that I received and my daughter was receiving from this school does not compare to any in the state of Kentucky
