St. Mary's Fund

The Power to Make a World of Difference

St. Mary’s nurtures engaged, inspired and intellectually curious learners who are caring, collaborative and confident. We inspire each student to discover his or her special talents and passions. And, we instill in our students the belief that each of them has the power to make a difference in the world. We believe in the power of each of our teachers, coaches and staff to touch the hearts and minds of our students in the classroom, at recess, on the stage and on the athletic fields.

We know that through their gifts to the St. Mary’s Fund, our community has the power to impact the educational experience of all of our students. The St. Mary’s Fund, formally known as the Annual Fund, allows us to invest added resources and provide new opportunities that could not be funded through tuition. This represents the difference between a solid education and a truly exemplary one, where innovative ideas and state-of-the-art resources for teaching and learning practices are not held back by budget constraints.

  • Small class sizes ensuring more personal attention

  • Recruiting and retaining an exceptionally dedicated and well-trained faculty and staff
