Stella Maris Academy
- Stella Maris Academy strives to provide an environment in which students can develop their intellectual abilities, learn to make moral decisions, and be formed in Christian values and attitudes.
- As educators, we are dedicated to the holistic belief that the total child's needs are to be addressed.
- We are concerned about meeting the individual needs of each student as a journey toward positive self-esteem.
- Children who believe in themselves believe they can learn. Through a positive approach to learning, we try to challenge, support and facilitate the development of each student's initiative, creativity and leadership potential.
- Stella Maris welcomes students of any race, color, religion, national and ethnic origin.
- Although we are a Parochial School of Mary, Star of the Sea Catholic Church, children from other parishes as well as children of other religions are accepted as space is available.
- The faculty and staff of Stella Maris Academy affirm the rights and responsibilities of parents as the primary educators of their children.
- We recognize that the Catholic School is one of the most effective means of assisting parents in their educational task.
