Letter From the Principal
Since 1859 with parish support, St. Mary School has been providing an excellent Catholic education not only to the children of Elyria but children from all over Lorain County. All students, regardless of race, religion or economic situation, are welcome to become part of our school family.
Upon entering St. Mary School, one experiences a Christ-centered environment. Our Catholic faith plays an integral part in daily coursework and activities. We follow the current state standards as well as educational standards set forth by the Diocese of Cleveland.
While students are held to higher standards, a dedicated, experienced staff works to meet the needs of every child and the expectations of every parent. Our teachers continually participate in professional development covering the best educational practices. The latest technology enhances our teachers’ ability to shape the 21st century learners. Students in kindergarten through grade 8 are assigned individual Chromebooks. Each classroom is equipped with an ActivPanel. A Makerspace is in the computer lab to enhance all students’ abilities to create, invent and learn.
St. Mary School has provided exceptional education opportunities to children for 160 plus years. May God bless us with a successful school year as we continue to grow in knowledge, faith and service. We welcome you to visit our school to see for yourself!
