Enrollment at Saint Mary School

Each student is welcomed as a valued individual with unique educational, intellectual, spiritual, social, emotional, and physical needs and is supported appropriately.

The Children and Culture of Saint Mary School
Saint Mary School is looking for faithful, respectful young people who are academically focused

As a parochial school we believe that faith above all is the model for achievement. Catholic schools foster healthy social relationships, supportive and safe environments, and an emphasis on values. Let us partner with you in guiding your child to be a respectful, responsible young person. The future is bright and so are our students.

In the last decade, our enrollment has nearly doubled. We are thriving. By embracing our community and its surroundings we have adapted to the educational and environmental challenges of recent years. Our unique culture precisely represents the diversity and unity of our Ram community.

The Saint Mary School

The mission of our school is to love and serve our neighbors as Christ loved. We believe that every child deserves a highly rigorous, 21st century education rooted in the traditions of faith. We welcome all learners and are Ed Choice and Jon Peterson Special Needs Scholarship providers.

Events & Fundraisers

At Saint Mary School, we offer a challenging and enriching Catholic education to hundreds of students each year. For many of our families, a private education would not be possible because of financial hardships, but by the grace of God, these families are able to receive scholarships and assistance to make it possible to attend a Catholic school. We cannot do this without our annual fundraisers and generous gifts from benefactors like you!
