Message from the Principal

Dear parents,

On behalf of the St. Mary’s Academy community, I welcome you to learn more about St. Mary’s Academy. We are very proud of our community and look forward to sharing with you the many benefits of our school through the information found on our website.

At St. Mary’s Academy, we strive to bring a Christ-centered approach to educating your child in mind, body, and spirit. Since our founding in 1864 under the direction of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary, St. Mary’s has had a long tradition of academic excellence. That tradition continues today as we educate our children for the world of tomorrow.

St. Mary’s Academy provides a safe, nurturing, and faith-based educational environment where each child receives significant personal attention and love from a small, family-like staff in a small classroom environment. It is a place where children learn to love God and one another while getting to know who they are and how to be the best they can be. St. Mary’s is not merely a school, it is a loving family where students, teachers, parents, grandparents, and many others work together to support our mission which states, “St. Mary’s Academy provides an education within the Catholic tradition, nurturing the potential of each person while teaching respect and responsibility for all God’s creation.”

St. Mary’s dedication to excellence in academics empowers children to excel and achieve excellence, while expanding their horizons in a nurturing environment. The faculty’s commitment to high-quality instruction-focused skill development and partnership with parents enables students to flourish.

We invite you to see for yourself what makes St. Mary’s Academy such a wonderful place to learn and grow through God and the Catholic faith.


Mrs. Kimberly Koch
