Head of School Welcome


Welcome to St. Mary’s.

On behalf of the entire St. Mary’s community, we welcome you and thank you for your interest in our school. As we begin our 25th year, we continue our commitment to educating children to become courageous, caring global citizens and enlightened leaders of tomorrow.

St. Mary’s School is a private International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, the only school of its kind in Orange County. As one of the area’s premier independent schools, we succeed because of our outstanding faculty, innovative curriculum and unique community. Innovation and inquiry are at the heart of our philosophy. We are a vibrant, diverse community, welcoming of all faiths and backgrounds.


As an (IB) World School, we believe children learn by doing, and we use inquiry as a driver for all that we do. Our learning spaces reflect our commitment to cutting-edge education and offer a flexible, individualized approach to a school environment. Under the compassionate guidance of world-class faculty, we foster independent thinking and spark the imagination. Our goal is to prepare and inspire our children to become the leaders of tomorrow.

Our educators are committed not only to their academic work but to the overall betterment of their students. Our students are aware of their own unique abilities and understand how they can make an impact, both within themselves and in the world around them.  At St. Mary’s, we remain committed to the next generation of learners and educators and, as a result, are part of the education transformation. Identifying and nurturing the precious resources found within each and every child inspires all of us to greatness.


I encourage you to explore the wonderful St. Mary's community further for your child and family.
