St. Mary School is in the midst of an exciting transition. Recognizing a need to provide an education that prepares our students for jobs that do not yet exist, our school is taking a proactive approach to education by teaching 22nd century skills to our students. Keeping our Catholic faith at the heart of all we do, we seek to weave our faith across all curricular areas. The end result: the formation of smart, successful individuals with strong character. We set out to equip our students with the skills needed to change the world and the moral compass to utilize these gifts for the betterment of society. We strive to become a leading next generation school, offering an integrated STEM program, focused on preparing future leaders with the character, commitment, innovation, and grit to impact a world where bioengineering will play an increasingly important role.
