Founded in 1948, St. Mary’s School is one of the oldest, most successful traditional Catholic schools in the valley. With 68 years of experience in helping students achieve their personal best, we are proud to say we challenge all our students to reach their full potential while developing values and a rich faith life.
We firmly believe that an investment in Catholic education is a guaranteed investment in our future. With a fundamental emphasis on the whole child, Catholic education –by its nature—organically develops our children spiritually, academically and socially; leaving them well-prepared for life success and fulfillment. And results conclusively show that an investment in Catholic education is a blue-chip investment in our future.
Research tells us that... Catholic school graduates are more tolerant of diverse views, are more likely to vote, are more likely to be civically engaged, and even earn higher wages than their public school peers. And no system of schools achieves this success with such dramatic economic efficiency, typically educating students at less than half of the cost of neighboring public and charter schools.
