Shaping Hearts and Minds in the Service of Christ!


Our Philosophy

Each student is endowed with their own unique set of God-given gifts and talents. Our certified and dedicated staff works with these gifts and talents to enable students to develop spiritually, academically, and emotionally. We strive to give our children the skills and knowledge necessary for a successful future. At St. Mary School, our purpose is:

· to have Christ as the model of our faculty and inspiration to our students

· to provide an atmosphere of caring for each individual child, creating a sense of family

· to instill a sense of Christian responsibility for our world

· to prepare students through religious and academic curriculum to become actively involved in bringing about God’s Kingdom on Earth

· to guide each student to develop the powers of constructive problem solving, independent reasoning, and acceptance of responsibility

· to encourage parents and teachers to share the privilege and responsibility of Christian   education by witnessing to the faith we profess

Kids of the Cross

Kids of the Cross

Kids of the Cross is a group formed by St. Mary School students for anyone in Kindergarten through 8th Grade.

FOCUS: Serving others and learning about our Catholic faith.

MEMBERSHIP: Participants commit to daily prayer, weekly Mass, and monthly Confession. 

1. Cherubs ~ Members prior to First Communion or the completion of 2nd grade.
2. Angels ~ Members who have completed First Communion or the 2nd grade. 
3. Saints ~ Advancement from Angel after presenting the life of a saint to the group and earning 100 *stepping stones

Monthly Meetings: Generally the 1st Friday of the month
Meetings focus on the saints, prayer, and Church teaching. The fundamentals of our Catholic faith are tied together with the lives of the saints to demonstrate how ordinary people live their faith in extraordinary ways. 

*Stepping stones are real stones given for each hour of service. They are visible reminders of the sacrifice members make in serve to others and that sacrifice creates a path to saintly life.

Heroes of the Month

St. Catherine of Alexandria

Feast Day:  November 25

St. Catherine after having a dream immediately became Christian at the age of 14. St. Catherine was super smart and converted a lot of people to Christianity. The Emperor Maxentius offered her a Royal wedding if she would deny her faith and she refused. As a result, Maxentius tossed her in jail. While in jail St. Catherine converted  Maxentius' wife and around 200 Roman soldiers. At the age of 18 Maxentius had her beheaded. St. Catherine showed amazing courage and enthusiasm for the Christian faith. St. Catherine, Pray for us!

Virtue of the Month


Think before you act. Consider the consequences. 

"For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it? Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation, and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, saying, `This man began to build, and was not able to finish.'" ~Luke 14:28-29

Emergency Drill Requirements

St. Mary School takes seriously its commitment to safety. We adhere to local, state and federal guidelines in relationship to emergency preparation. As a member of the Michigan Catholic Conference, we are also held accountable to other aspects of school facility safety guidelines.

Pursuant to a change in the state law as of July 1, 2014, all schools (public and private) must present a list of scheduled emergency drill requirements to our local county emergency management coordinator, Chief Clark, Eaton County. We are also required to publicly document drills on our website within 30 days of completing each one. These dates will remain on the website for a minimum of three years.
