Dear Parents of Saint Mary’s School Students,

As Saint Mary’s continues to gather information for the faculty, leadership and staff to consider improvements and changes that will be incorporated in our planning for the next 5 years, I once again ask for your input. Two surveys are available to you for providing this input, and will be available through January 30. These surveys are provided by Advanc-Ed, our accreditation organization, and are administered by the Office of Catholic Schools, Diocese of Richmond. Survey responses are anonymous and confidential – Saint Mary’s will only have access to the response data.

Parents are asked to respond to two surveys, the first asks you to consider Catholic Identity Defining Characteristics at Saint Mary’s, and the second asks you to consider Catholic Identity Program Effectiveness. Please follow the links below. Please note that there are two “St. Mary’s” schools completing the survey, so please be cautious in selecting our St. Mary’s School. Students in grades 5 – 8 will also be asked to complete a similar survey when in the computer lab.
