St. Mary School German Village

Admissions at St. Mary School

Each student is welcomed as a valued individual with unique educational, intellectual, spiritual, social, emotional, and physical needs and is supported appropriately.

St.Mary School


As a parochial school we believe that faith above all is the model for achievement. Catholic schools foster healthy social relationships, supportive and safe environments, and an emphasis on values. Let us partner with you in guiding your child to be a respectful, responsible young person. The future is bright and so are our students.

In the last decade, our enrollment has nearly doubled. We are thriving. By embracing our community and its surroundings we have adapted to the educational and environmental challenges of recent years. Our unique culture precisely represents the diversity and unity of our Ram community.

Many of these events are organized in collaboration with our Home & School Association, exemplifying the strong sense of unity within our Saint Mary community.

As you look ahead to the coming year, anticipate an exciting lineup of events that have become cherished traditions at Saint Mary:
