St. Mary School offers classes for Pre-Kindergarten students who will be 3 years of age by September 1.
St. Mary’s Pre-kindergarten is the foundation for your child’s early spiritual and academic education. The children will be exposed to religion on a daily basis. Structured group and one-on-one lessons are given in the classroom to help develop each child’s unique talent. The program helps the students have an easy transition into kindergarten by offering lessons in Religion, Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies and classroom management.
Kindergarten students must be 5 by September 1.
Kindergarten students not only develop academic competencies, but a spiritual and moral awareness as well. Kindergarten students receive daily individual, small group, and whole group instruction in Religion, Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies in order to master the skills introduced in Pre-kindergarten. The use of learning centers, seat work, and field trips help bridge the gap from Pre-kinderten to first grade allowing the children to explore their environment both inside and beyond the classroom.
St Mary’s students in the elementary grades are taught the core curriculum subjects, which include Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, and Religion. Art, Spanish, Music, Technology, and Physical Education are included weekly for students.
Students in the middle grades of 6th – 8th grade are taught using departmentalized classes. The school excels academically, meeting and exceeding state and national standards. High standardized test scores demonstrate the strength of the academic program. Students in 8th grade are offered the chance to take Algebra 1 and Spanish for high school credit. Junior high students are enriched with art, music, and technology. They may choose to participate in a variety of extra curricular activities, including choir, yearbook, chess, sports, and musical theater.
In keeping with the Religious Atmosphere of the school, students are taught the religious connotation for all of our holidays, and the Christian way of conducting themselves in everyday life. Prayer and service are an essential part life at St. Mary Catholic School.
