St. Mary’s School

St. Mary’s School has provided its students a high quality, college-preparatory experience in the best traditions of Catholic education, morality, and social service since 1865.

Our faculty strives to meet the needs and interests of our students, getting to know them as individuals, and engaging them as partners in a meaningful curriculum. Our students “walk the walk” by contributing many thousands of hours of service to the greater community each year.

St. Mary’s also offers a full range of extra-curricular programs and athletics. We are proud of our school and the students it produces. St. Mary’s graduates excel academically, are well-rounded, and have gained knowledge in an environment that encourages spiritual growth and reflection.
