Teaching Philosophy

St. Mary's is a co-educational, secondary school where all students receive a quality academic experience. St. Mary's strives to form leaders who love God, work hard and are compassionate toward others. We enable our students to develop their intellectual, moral and physical talents to acquire a more perfect sense of individual responsibility, a correct use of freedom and a capacity for productive participation in society. St. Mary’s integrates the use of iPads, ebooks and mobile apps throughout a student’s curriculum and learning process. Students access their iPad in every class as a medium for their direct learning and interaction with faculty. Our rigorous college-preparatory program is fully integrated over seven years. The average class size is 22 students and our student to teacher ratio is 10:1, encouraging individual attention from faculty dedicated to recognizing the individuality of each student.
