We understand that the middle school age group has a unique set of needs- academically, spiritually, physically, and socially. St. Mary Middle School students are encouraged to be inquisitive and challenged to try new academic, athletic and extra-curricular activities. We believe that learning occurs best in a classroom setting where the student to teacher ratio is small enough that the teacher knows each student as an individual.
Daily core subjects include language arts, math, social studies, science, and religion. Students can test into higher level math courses and even take classes to receive high school credit while in middle school. Teachers are able to ability group and individualize course material to challenge and support our students’ needs.
Middle School students participate in a variety of enrichment classes during their middle school years. Some of the offerings include:
Middle school students learn to serve and lead through weekly Mass, daily prayer, daily religion classes, annual grade level retreats, and through school wide and class specific service projects.
Sports and extracurricular activities are in important part of honing our students’ talents, but most importantly they develop teamwork, leadership, humility and respect for each other. We believe all students should have the opportunity to participate in activities that build these important skills. In addition to their enrichment classes, students can participate in sports teams including baseball, basketball, cheerleading, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, swimming, tennis, track and field, and volleyball.
Other clubs for involvement include:
