St. Mary’s Catholic Elementary School
We commit ourselves to educating every child through the use of a challenging, well-rounded, standards-based curriculum enhanced by open communication.
Each student is recognized as a unique gift from God and is encouraged to become an integral part of our global community.
Keeping before us the teachings of Jesus, we accept God's invitation to create a spiritually nourishing Catholic environment.
We welcome families of all faiths and admit students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin.
Registration for the 2021-2022 school year is now open! Registration will be online again this year. We ask that parents register as soon as possible so we can verify how many spots are available for prospective families. We are recruiting new families, and our best recruiting partners are current families - help us spread the word about all St. Mary's has to offer!

St. Mary's Project H.O.P.E
Did you know that Project H.O.P.E, also known as St. Mary's scrip program, offers a way for you to save on tuition? School families that purchase over $1,000 in scrip gift cards receive 75% of the total rebate earned from the vendors to put towards next year's tuition. Buying Project H.O.P.E gift cards can make a real difference in a family's tuition costs - last year, some St. Mary's families received over $10,000 in tuition rebates! Friends and family can support by buying scrip and designating the rebate to go to your family. Scrip order forms are available at the school office as well as at the church's rectory office. If you send in your order form in the morning with your child, we can usually get it back to you by the end of the day.
Remind is the program we are using for text updates on school announcements and reminders. Either download the app and enter class code @6dfa639 or send a text with the message of @6dfa639 to 81010.
If you need assistance, please direct any questions to the school office at 402-291-1694.
