St. Mary’s Catholic Elementary School

A child’s mind is the greatest gift, and the teachers and staff of St. Mary’s Elementary School are pleased to be part of shaping the minds of children from early learners beginning at age 2 to early childhood for ages 3 and 4 to kindergarten through 5th grade. Our school provides a curriculum focused on character and cognitive development and faith formation. Classes are designed so that teachers have more opportunities to work one-on-one with students to help that each child realize his/her full potential.

In addition to the classroom setting, St. Mary’s students enjoy instruction in art, library, music, physical education (the body), computer technology and Spanish (the mind). Time is also spent focusing on prayer (the soul), and giving to those less fortunate (the heart).

Visit here to learn more about our Early Childhood Program for children ages 2-4.
