St. Mary Catholic School serves students from preschool through eighth grade. We are dedicated to bringing out the highest potential in each student. We find that our commitment to integrate Gospel values throughout all aspects of the school day promotes a secure, caring environment that fosters the intellectual, spiritual, and social development of our students.

St. Mary School focuses on preparing our students for the challenges of the 21st century. To this end, our curriculum balances the teaching of basic skills—such as math, writing, and grammar—with the development of higher-order thinking skills. To us, a quality educational program is rigorous, relevant, and religious. We are proud that our students consistently score well above the national average on standardized tests.

We seek more than our students’ academic success. Taking our credo of “Building the Faith One Student at a Time” to heart, we want to help our students understand and recognize their purpose in life—to use their talents to help accomplish our Lord’s mission on earth.

Our History
St. Mary's began with a church converted from a creamery purchased in 1923 through the efforts of 25 parish families. In 1961 a four-classroom school with a hall at the south end was built, followed by a convent. In 1972, this part of the school was converted to five small classrooms and our present parish hall was built. That same year, the original church burnt to the ground. Masses were celebrated in the hall until our present church was dedicated in 1984. The current building boom continues to bring many families to our parish area - many of whom look to St. Mary's to educate their children in the faith, and even deepen their own knowledge of God.
