Founded in 1966 with just four classrooms, Saint Mary’s Catholic School is currently the academic home to nearly 430 students across 21 homerooms, including two sections for each grade, JK through 8.
A new academic facility, including eight new classrooms, was added in 1998 along with a newly renovated fine arts center. This included an automated library, fully equipped computer lab, as well as new music and art facilities. The entire school, including classrooms, is networked with Internet capability. With the completion of the newest worship space in 2008, Saint Mary’s added six Early Childhood Development Classrooms for the Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten and First Grade classes.
More recently from 2018 through 2020, the Go Forth! Capital Campaign raised in excess of $2 million to renovate Saint Mary’s elementary school wing and main offices, including a beautiful re-imagining of the school entrance and nearby restrooms. The renovation work also converted the existing library into a state-of-the-art digital media and design process learning center. In September 2020, a Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization system was professionally installed in all of our air handling units to significantly improve air quality in every part of our church and school as part of our COVID-19 mitigation strategy. This technology has been proven to kill airborne bacteria and viruses, including COVID-19. This improvement represents a $50,000 investment in the health, safety and well-being of every child and adult who spends time within the buildings of Saint Mary’s Church and School.
In addition to top-notch facilities, Saint Mary’s is blessed with excellent leadership and tremendous parental support including a robust PTO. Volunteers are seen as a gift to the school, a gift that is invaluable to the children’s educational process.
Saint Mary’s School is pleased to provide an educational environment where students can be challenged academically in a Christian setting. In this atmosphere, children are taught to respect the dignity of each human being, to recognize their own God-given gifts and to develop these gift to their highest potential.
