Welcome to St. Mary’s Catholic School
St. Mary’s Catholic School is a kindergarten through grade 8 school. We offer instruction in all core academic subjects as well as religion, art, music, physical education, and technology. We are currently transitioning to a Catholic Liberal Arts (Classical Education) Curriculum.
What is Catholic Liberal Arts? Catholic Liberal Arts seeks the truth, goodness, and beauty in all things. This is because it is a reflection of God who is Truth, Goodness and Beauty Himself. The goal of the liberal arts is wisdom and to produce a “vir bonum docendi peritus” a good person who is skilled in speaking.
We help students exercise the faculty of memory in classical poetry readings and memorization. Latin studies help to train a logical mind, eloquence of expression and to improve English vocabulary. Students study ancient Greek and Roman history to understand the foundations of Western Civilization. An inquiry-based method of science instruction helps to develop a questioning, inquisitive mind. A virtues program to develop individuals of strong moral character. All this trains students to seek the truth in the world around them and to gravitate to what is good and beautiful.
“Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.”–St. Catherine of Siena
Two Parishes. One School.
Holy Name of Mary and St. Joseph’s Catholic Parish are home to several St. Mary’s families. The two parishes actively support students of St. Mary’s.
Student Catholic Identity
Students learn about, and reinforce their Catholic Identity daily through prayers, and weekly through Mass, song & prayer. Students practice the sacrament of reconciliation twice during the school year. In addition, they learn about the Virtues Program with different monthly virtues and participate in Service Learning Projects.
