A Letter From Our Principal

Dear Parents,

Thank you for your interest in Saint Mary Academy. We are honored that you have requested information about our school. Saint Mary Academy is a Catholic elementary school that serves students in preschool through eighth grade. As a 2015 National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, our dedicated faculty and staff are committed to providing challenging academic programs, a wide variety of extracurricular activities and faith-filled experiences for all of our students.

As you enter our building, you will see a framed statement that reads, "Be it known to all who enter here that Christ is the reason for this school. He is the unseen but ever present teacher in its classrooms. He is the model of its faculty and inspiration of its students." As the greatest teacher of all time, He models unconditional love, compassion, patience, and respect for all people. As members of the Saint Mary Academy school family, we are reminded of the many opportunities that we have to be the heart and hands of Christ for each other. We are committed to academic excellence and developing the whole child in an environment where they feel safe, loved, and respected and are challenged to be the best version of themselves that God intended them to be.

If you have additional questions, please contact me personally, Mrs. Lisa Kelly, at (502) 315-2551 or email, lisa.kelly@saintmaryacademy.com.
