Our School at a Glance
Self-discipline – The emphasis on external discipline in Catholic schools is intended to teach internal, self-discipline. Students are expected to accept responsibility for their actions, to respect others and to make good decisions that lead to right relationships.
Christ as a model – The goal of a Catholic education is to help children mature into Christ-like people. Students are encouraged to recognize the presence of Christ in themselves and others. The religious formation of children begun at home is continued in our Catholic school.
A safe, supportive environment – Reverence for the human dignity of every person comes from recognizing Christ in self and others. Catholic schools strive to be “Christ-centered zones”.
High expectations – Catholic school teachers expect every student to achieve. Over time, Catholic school students come to internalize this value, enhancing their self-esteem.
Committed parents – Parents are a child’s first teacher. At Catholic schools, parents take an active role in their children’s education. The school supports families and works with them for the benefit of children. When problems come up, parents are contacted and asked, “How can we work together to solve this problem?”
A caring community – Parents provide hundreds of volunteer service hours to our school. Parents assist with everything from playground supervision, field trips and putting band-aids on skinned knees, to raising funds, and marketing our school.
When you send your child to St. Mary's Catholic School, your family becomes members of a special community. Like your children, your family will be enriched by the opportunity to grow in faith.
