As a parent, you have options. Whether it’s Catholic school, public school, or homeschooling, your discernment must ultimately be based on what is best for your child.
Therefore, we believe St. Mary’s must continue its mission to be the best soil it can be. This must be a school where your child’s entire self—body, mind, and spirit—will grow and thrive.
We must prepare our school, which has been teaching and nurturing generations of students since 1885, for the future. Our community is growing as young families move to Delaware and plant new roots. The culture is changing around us–often in ways that create difficult challenges for our faith.
Now is the time to respond.
1. Holistic Growth
We, as a core ministry of the parish, must set ourselves apart from today’s culture in order to offer a holistic and Christo-centric education that respects the entire person and values the promise of eternal life.
2. Education that Respects Your Child’s Developmental Stages
Your child understands the world differently as they grow. Implemented over the next 3-to-5 years, St. Mary’s will offer a style of education that blends Classical Liberal Arts and Montessori models, building a foundation where your child will encounter Truth, Beauty and Goodness and be able to think critically.

IN A FEW WORDS: An authentically Catholic education that respects the entire person.
