Academics

At St. Mary’s Academy, we educate our students to become Christ-centered, global-minded students positioned to pursue and achieve personal and professional goals for the 21st century. Your child will learn through inquiry-based processes, allowing our teachers to build on each student’s curiosity. In this student-centered approach, our teachers help your child create a framework of questioning so that through investigating scenarios, data analysis, and the communication of findings, your child can increase information-processing skills and intellectual engagement.
