St. Mary Elementary & Jr. High School says

St. Mary School takes pride in student achievement and continues to have a wonderful spirit of learning. We are strongly committed to maintaining a positive educational climate; one that is indicative of the Christian values we teach. The success of our endeavors is contingent upon the excellent cooperation which exists between St. Mary parents, teachers and students. The philosophy of this school is to lead the students to reach their true potential - academically, physically, socially, culturally and most importantly, spiritually. We strive for academic excellence by developing essential self-directed learning and critical thinking skills. Knowledge is emphasized rather than grades as is cooperation rather than competition. The students are encouraged to develop healthy bodies through physical education classes and an extracurricular sports program. The emphasis of these programs are skill development and good sportsmanship. Opportunities are provided for the students to engage in service activities in the school, parish, and community. Through these activities the students develop into responsible citizens and show respect and care for all individuals. The goal spiritually is for each student to develop a personal relationship with God, through Jesus Christ, as taught in the Scripture and Sacred Tradition. Gods truth and message are integrated into all learning. All faculty and staff are responsible for creating an atmosphere of Faith. Through this framework of academic, physical, spiritual, social, and cultural growth, each child is encouraged and guided to discover his/her own gift and to realize the full value of this gift from God.



Private schools, including parochial and boarding, are funded through tuition and fees. The cost varies from school to school, but most families pay tuition to attend them. Many private schools offer financial aid or discounts, so it's worthwhile to ask about these options.
