Education Philosophy

St. Mary School is dedicated to the educational mission of the Roman Catholic Church - to proclaim the message of Jesus, to build community, to enter into prayer and worship, and to motivate to service.

We believe . . .

  • that St. Mary School exists to inspire students to develop their giftedness and potential so that they might grow in their faith and choose to serve others in Jesus’ name.
  • that St. Mary School’s ultimate goal is the development of the whole child – spiritually, intellectually and physically.
  • that parents are the primary educators of their children. St. Mary School partners with parents to educate and instill in their children knowledge and truth, as well as Catholic/Christian attitudes and values for daily living.
  • that St. Mary School provides a joyful, positive and respectful atmosphere, which fosters community and excites students to grow in self-discipline and acceptance of self and others.
