Spiritual Life

After receiving a Catholic education, we truly believe our students are emboldened to answer the call to holiness and become change agents in every endeavor they pursue.

Spiritual life at St. Mary’s Academy allows students to grow in faith, explore their interests, and feel safe, accepted, and encouraged. We challenge our students to integrate the values of Jesus Christ and the sacraments into their everyday lives. Our service and outreach programs allow students to understand the importance of becoming servant leaders in their communities. Through this, our graduates leave as compassionate individuals who respect other cultural and personal perspectives to serve our communities better.

Religion Role

The chaplain is available to students, faculty, and staff for spiritual and emotional support. Parents can also request the chaplain's support as they seek to meet the needs of their students.
