When you think of Catholic Schools in Mt. Clemens, Michigan, St. Mary Catholic School automatically comes to mind. That’s because since 1871 St. Mary School has been a pillar of Macomb County, due both to our long-standing commitment to the community and our continued commitment to an academically-sound, faith-filled education for Preschool and Kindergarten students - 8th Grade.
At St. Mary, we pride ourselves in partnering with families to nurture the whole child through opportunities including:
National Junior Honor Society
Boy and Girl Scouts
Band and Choir
St. Mary Green Team (helping to maintain our Michigan Green School status)
Summer learning courses and summer camp for extended learning opportunities
Before and after school Latchkey program
St. Mary Catholic School is accredited through the Michigan Association of Non - Public Schools (MANS).
Our Early Childhood Program has been developed to educate the whole child. The St. Mary Preschool and Kindergarten programs introduce a wide variety of learning opportunities that promote a high-quality educational experience in the areas of creativity, social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development. We offer full and half day Preschool and Kindergarten to accommodate the needs of our youngest learners and their families.
Students and faculty use a variety of technological tools including Smart boards, desktop and laptop computers, ELMO document cameras and mp3 technology. Guided Reading instruction is incorporated into all K-5 classrooms. A full-time learning specialist helps offer every student the opportunity to excel in mathematics and reading.
Our religious education program includes weekly Masses for students in Grades 1-8 at our home parish, St. Peter Church. Additionally, all students in Grades 1-8 attend Mass in our school gym each week, with kindergarten students joining for worship in the spring.
The decision to offer your child a St. Mary education is an investment in the future. Many St. Mary graduates advance to some of the most prestigious Catholic High Schools in Metro Detroit, including De La Salle Collegiate, Regina High School, University of Detroit Jesuit High School Academy and Cardinal Mooney Catholic High School. There our students go on to excel in advanced placement and honors courses and graduate with honors.
St. Mary School offers competitive tuition rates (with other private schools in Macomb County) without extra fees or fundraisers. Tuition assistance is available through the Archdiocese of Detroit. Additional assistance is available for members of the St. Peter Parish family.
We invite you to learn more about St. Mary School via a visit to our campus.
