A Catholic, College-Prep Family Since 1885

Root in the Catholic tradition, St. Mary's High School looks to the future as we educate the next generation of moral, responsible leaders. Partnering with parents to educate the whole student, St. Mary's academics meet students where they are while challenging them to become critical thinkers. Four years of theology, weekly Mass, and community service help inform and shape students spiritually. Athletics, clubs, and activities give students opportunities to grow as leaders and teammates.
