Catholic Identity

The Diocese of Raleigh Office of Education mission is to ensure that Catholic Identity remains the foundation of all we do. In partnership with our spiritual leaders, St. Mary Catholic School supports students to become disciples and scholars and strengthen families in faith.

St. Mary provides students with a faith-based education through the integration of Catholic Social Teachings and Gospel values. We educate the whole child and foster connection to the community around them. In addition to the core academic areas, visual and fine arts, athletics, and extra-curricular activities, students serve as the hands and feet of Christ. Our faculty and staff integrate the academic curriculum with faith-based learning to maximize instructional time and to facilitate the transfer of skills and understanding.
