Saint Mary Academy is the Parish School of St. Bernadette Catholic Community under the guidance of the Archdiocese of Louisville. As members of the Catholic community that brings us together, we operate with the philosophy as stated below.

At Saint Mary Academy, we believe education is a process of holistic development, strengthening and enriching each person’s unique gifts and talents to develop spiritually, academically, physically, emotionally and socially. We further believe that education involves the whole person in the course of his/her entire life. It is a process that is carried out in a community in which each member promotes the growth of the other, growing in an atmosphere of respect, mutual help,
collaboration and communion.

We believe that Catholic education begins, as with life, in the heart of the family. Parents, the primary educators of their children, instill and nourish values deeply human and deeply spiritual.
It is parental commitment to their faith that makes Catholic education possible.
