Welcome to Saint Mary Academy 2015 National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence

“Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old, they will not turn from it.”
- Proverbs 22:6

Pre-School To 8th Grade

Our school community is a place where all students are provided opportunities to grow spiritually, academically and socially. The faculty and staff are committed to academic excellence and assisting students in reaching their greatest potential and realizing their gifts and talents. At Saint Mary Academy we strive to challenge and engage all students and promote collaboration, critical thinking and problem solving in an environment deeply rooted in our Catholic faith. We grow closer to God and one another through daily prayer, retreats, weekly Mass, service and our Stewardship Program. As a school family, we are all called to be the heart and hands of Christ in service to one another.

Prospective families are welcome to visit Saint Mary Academy.

Individual tours provide families with the opportunity to visit classrooms, learn about our
curriculum, meet faculty and staff and ask questions.

7th Grade - Homeless and Refugees

Our students are working on increasing awareness of the needs for all of God’s children; particularly the homeless and refugees. As part of our Religious instruction, we welcomed Catholic Charities to set up a Refugee camp simulation and the students experienced the hardships that these families face as they struggle to survive, receive shelter, and create a better life. It was an eye-opening event for our 7th grade students. Not only did it increase awareness but help create an empathetic heart and desire to make a difference in our world.

First Day Of School


Living Rosary

During the months of October and/or May, we honor Our Mother Mary and celebrate the Rosary by creating and praying a “Living Rosary”. A living rosary is when people are used to represent each bead of the rosary and lead us in prayer. The aim of this prayer is to bring our community together in a prayerful way and to share in the holy ritual of praying the rosary.
