As a Catholic school, the religious core of our tradition is rooted in Christianity and the richness of the Roman Catholic tradition. We partner with parents through authentic teaching of the Catholic faith and implementing the Gospel values in a Christ-centered environment. Our students have the privilege to pray individually, with their peers and as a school community. We gather often to celebrate our Christian beliefs with monthly school Masses, prayer services and grade level Masses to St. Mary's Catholic Church.

Saint Mary’s Catholic School welcomes families of all faiths. Our non-Catholic students participate in all aspects of faith formation to the extent they can according to Catholic teaching and the teachings of their respective faiths.

At Saint Mary’s not only do your children receive lessons on the basics. They also learn the values they need to make the world a better place to live. They learn that we are all children of God, loved by God, and that we should care for others accordingly.

Catholic students prepare for the Sacraments of Eucharist and Reconciliation in religious studies class. Every student, regardless of his or her faith tradition, learns about these Catholic Sacraments and is invited to attend the celebration at Saint Mary’s Catholic Church. Students entering our school after the second grade, will receive sacramental preparation through the preparation program in their parish.

Acts ofService

Saint Mary’s School utilizes service-based learning, which integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, develop compassion, and strengthen our community. Through a wide variety of service projects, our students can see that the world around them has needs that must be met and learn what an important role they can play. By teaching children from the earliest stages about the value of helping, sharing, and serving, we are cultivating an attitude that shapes the way they view the world. Service to others gives children a strong sense of ownership in their community.
