I am delighted that you have taken a very important first step in discovering the impact of a Saint Mary’s Elementary School education for your child. I am confident that as you learn more about our mission, philosophy, and goals, you will come to realize that a child’s life on campus is one of joyful learning; a place “where students flourish” academically in their studies and, equally important, as valuable members of our school community.
The story of our success in preparing competent, independent learners goes far beyond the traditional measurement of assessment results. Yes, our students are exceptionally well educated and thoroughly prepared for academic success in high school and beyond. But our focus on Catholic faith is central to a Saint Mary’s education. There is great comfort in knowing that our students are developing a strong moral compass embedded in a deeper understanding of their faith and their relationship with God and one another. Caring for others within the school and reaching out to help other people less fortunate is critical to our mission and our students’ overall formation as successful young men and women.
The success of our students does not happen in a void, but is driven by the talented and passionate faculty and staff. The faculty take an ordinary day to an extraordinary level, inspiring their students to love learning, while nourishing their inquisitiveness to discover new things and accept challenges to expand their thinking.
I hope that you will take the next step and call us for a personal tour so that you can further explore the gift of a Saint Mary’s education and how this opportunity will enhance your child and develop a strong foundation for future learning.
I look forward to greeting you and learning more about you and your family.
God bless you.
