Admissions

Thank you for considering St. Mary’s Academy!

Selecting a school for your child is an extremely important choice parents have to make. As parents, we want our children to have the best education available so they can compete in today’s global society. St. Mary’s Academy offers a strong academic foundation for our children, along with providing a solid development in the traditions of the Catholic faith.

Our Programs

We offer Pre-Kindergarten programs starting with age 3 through Grade 6. Our Pre-K program for three year olds is a half day program, two days per week on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Our Pre-K program for four year olds is full day Monday through Friday. Our Kindergarten is also full day.

We follow the New York State curriculum guidelines as well as the Inter-Diocesan Curriculum that goes above and beyond what New York State requires. All of our teachers are certified to teach in New York State. We pride ourselves in our high success rates on the New York State Assessments and our 100% acceptance rates of our graduates to the Diocesan Catholic High Schools in our area.

Our Philosophy

  • Parents are the primary educators of their children: Catholic schools work in partnership with parents to transmit our faiths and values.
  • Christ-centered environments support the healthy growth of the whole person: physically, emotionally, spiritually and academically.
  • Children learn at different rates and in different ways: each is a unique child of God.
  • Academic excellence is a worthwhile and attainable goal.
  • Quality athletic and extracurricular programs are important components of a comprehensive educational program.
  • Catholic school teachers bring the Good news of God’s love and salvation to their students.
  • Catholic schools should be aligned in regard to educational programs while adhering to National, State and Diocesan standards.
  • Students should develop leadership skills that enable them to be responsible citizens who serve others.
  • Catholic schools teach students to be stewards of the gifts and talents God has given them.
  • Students should be taught to view all people as the family of God; appreciation and respect for diversity is necessary for Christian behavior.
  • School communities should foster the growth of caring, compassionate, and morally sound individuals who follow God’s command to love one another.
