Abiding in the Mystery of the Eucharist, we proclaim the greatness of the Lord and rejoice in God our Savior. Strengthened by Jesus Christ, we go out to answer His call to build the Kingdom of Heaven through witness, worship and service to all those we encounter.
St. Mary School has been teaching and nurturing generations of students in Delaware County since 1885. Uniting the traditions of the Catholic Church with traditional academia, our private school provides students in preschool through eighth grade a holistic and Christo-centric education that respects the entire person and values the promise of eternal life.
Here your children will find their roots in a caring, nurturing, and rich soil where their whole self—body, mind, and spirit—will grow and thrive.
Accredited by the Ohio Catholic School Accrediting Association and under the direction of the Diocese of Columbus, our fully licensed staff participates in monthly professional development and works to individualize instruction for each student.
Students participate in service projects both at school and through the parish.
St. Mary School provides many opportunities for students to practice their faith. Through daily prayer and religion classes, weekly mass, a strong message of discipleship and participation in traditional Catholic sacraments and feasts, St. Mary students live out their faith. The strong impact of these early experiences in Church activities develops a moral guide for students as they face their future. Faith formation happens through living out the Gospel message.
St. Mary School serves children of Greater Columbus regardless of race, creed, or national origin.
Inspired by our Mother Mary, and rooted in our Catholic faith, the St. Mary community nurtures spiritual growth, academic excellence, a responsibility to self, and service to others.
