Choosing a Catholic Education is one of the greatest gifts you can give your child. You make the commitment to the highest academics, a safe environment, a faith-based curriculum, surrounding your child with excellent teachers, and so much more.
St. Mary’s Parish School does not charge the actual cost it requires to educate a student. We recognize the sacrifice Catholic education can have on families and provide multiple resources for financial assistance.
St. Mary’s Parish School accepts students of all faiths and does not discriminate based on race or nation of origin. All are welcome to attend our school. St. Mary’s does, however, have the option to deny enrollment based on academic and conduct history.
