Since 1945, Saint Mary’s Catholic School has provided excellence in education, together with a loving Christian environment, for students in PreK 3 through 8th grade. Children thrive in our atmosphere that nurtures their faith and instills cherished values such as respect, responsibility, honesty, kindness, and self-confidence. Within the halls of Saint Mary’s, you will find enthusiastic students supported by loving, certified teachers and staff serving as their scholastic and spiritual guides. While Saint Mary’s is not quite a century old, the model of Catholic education is rooted in 2000 years of Catholic tradition, where Jesus Christ is the model teacher.
At the forefront of our rigorous curriculum is the acclaimed Orton-Gillingham reading method, rounded out with a complete academic program that includes music, art, Spanish, technology, physical education, and library for every student. A wide variety of extracurriculars fulfill our mission to educate the mind, body, and spirit. Additionally, Saint Mary’s has a 13:1 student to teacher ratio and is fully accredited through Cognia, formerly Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
Our outstanding preschool program has been recognized for the past three years as the “Best of Rome” As a full-day program, with optional before and after school care, preschool at Saint Mary’s is a great fit for working parents and a wonderful introduction to the school.
