How Do You Stretch a Brain?

Human brain experts tell us we use different parts of our brain to do different things. Whether its moving your body through space, creating art, speaking a foreign language, doing math, reading or playing a musical instrument they all exercise and literally "stretch" our brains, by using different parts of it. They've also found that when children are exposed to all of these learning areas, they get much smarter in the areas we normally test them on. St. Mary's students do all these things every week of every school year from Pre-K to 8th grade. As a result, our students have some of the highest test scores in Nebraska and are among the brightest students in the nation.

St Mary's Information

St. Mary's Catholic School is a Pre-Kindergarten through Eighth Grade School of the Archdiocese of Omaha. Our mission is to provide a Catholic education that nurtures students' hearts and minds to become servant leaders in an ever-changing world.

Our philosophy of education is to offer a five-day program to assist families in teaching those truths, skills, and ideals, which are necessary for Christian living. We believe that education must develop the faculties and abilities of the whole child: spiritually, intellectually, physically, and emotionally. To help achieve this, our faculty and staff are an integral part of the formation of Christian community and dedicate themselves to the task of developing Christian citizens.
