St. Mary's is a special place that continues to grow and adapt to the demands of a world that so desperately needs Christ-centered schools. Our patrons and benefactors have played a vital role in helping us achieve this important mission.
Our recent strategic planning process helped us to establish many goals for improvement in seven key areas that were examined. The establishment of an Annual Fund Drive is one of the goals. Please join in and become a critical part of making the vision of St. Mary's School a reality for the short-term and the next 100 years.
