Mission & Philosophy
The mission of Saint Mary School is to instill in each child a desire to seek and share God's wisdom, knowledge and truth.
Rooted in the Benedictine tradition upon which St. Mary Catholic School was established, we exist to provide the best academic and spiritual formation for all. Placing God first in our lives and loving others as we love ourselves, we endeavor to teach the gospel message by modeling it for our students so that they will worship more genuinely and embrace lives of service within our community.
St. Mary Catholic School recognizes that each child is a precious gift from God, challenged by Christ's call to use his/her talents to proclaim the Good News and to serve others. The school's purpose is to lay the foundation for young people to make choices rooted in the teachings of the Gospel. Through Christ's message children are given the tools to become active disciples in society.
