About US

Founded in 1958, St. Mary's Catholic School has a long history of helping develop tomorrow's leaders. Our strengths include:


  • Our staff of strong, excellent teachers with a combined experience of 150 years-at St. Mary's alone;

  • Small class sizes (the average student-to-teacher ratio is 19:1);

  • An academically excellent curriculum that challenges students' minds;

St. Mary's Catholic School provides a full-range of educational services for children. From Pre-K to 6th grade to before- and after-school care, our curriculum challenges students' minds and is individualized for each student-fostering independent thinking and work skills. It even makes piano lessons available during the school day for 3rd-6th graders!  All of this is what lets us provide well-rounded, individualized learning for our students.
