"Catholic education must be genuine education — formation of the whole person according to high standards of intellectual, moral and physical excellence. But all of that must be ordered to the formation of genuine disciples of Jesus — people who know him, love him and serve him in mission to the world. That’s what makes Catholic education Catholic." --Mark Brumley, president and CEO of Ignatius Press
At St. Mary school we strive to meet this definition of Catholic education every day. The Elementary years are critical for laying the foundation of a lifetime of learning and loving. The students are held to a high level of academic excellence while through our regular service projects and school wide community building activites are exposed to the joy and satifaction of giving.
