"Being in an environment where they learn to respect their elders, respect their classmates, respect God and get an excellent education is very important to us. The behavioral and academic standards here at St. Mary’s cannot be beat locally, so in our minds there was no better place to start. "

"St. Mary's is a very good school. I was academically farther ahead of my class when I went to middle school. The discipline of the curriculum helped me in more ways than I can count. As a LeMoyne college student now, I can say that St. Mary's Academy is excellent in educating the whole child."
~Skye Rode - Class of 2004
"I value my Catholic education because it taught me the respect of self, other students, and faculty, which was lived out through the Catholic values taught throughout each and every school day. A strong sense of community helped me to cultivate lifelong bonds between myself, fellow students, faculty, and school administration. The entire school community knew who I was and cared about me, and I about them."
~Brendan Keeney - Class of 2010
