Our job is to learn to care for your child as much as you do. The Stella Maris staff is dedicated to making each child feel known and loved. Our commitment to differentiation permits each child to advance at his or her own pace. Advanced learners are often able to place two years ahead of public school students in Math and Spanish. We take pride in being a family. We have second and third generation Stella Maris students and teachers.
