We are a Family of Saints
On the banks of Spa Creek, in the heart of Historic Annapolis, on grounds once owned by a Maryland Signer of the Declaration of Independence, is an exceptional school. At St. Mary's High School you'll find an education to challenge your talents and a community you'll always love.
It's the energy and enthusiasm in the classroom. It's the teachers who participate in your drama production or come to an athletic event to cheer you on. It's the laughter in the hallways -- and the friends all around you. The family spirit at St. Mary's will capture you instantly. Once you talk with our students and faculty and experience a day as a student, you will understand why our students and alumni care so much about their St. Mary's experience -- and why we have generations of alumni who enroll their own children at St. Mary's. St. Mary's is a place where doors are open to a bright future and a spirit of achievement prevails. We are a close-knit community that nourishes independence and excellence. At every turn, you will find faculty and administrators willing to guide and help you. Each day, you will gain new friends and collect new memories. And when you go on to the college of your choice, your most enthusiastic supporters will be your fellow Saints -- past and present. It's knowing that you're not just one number in the crowd - you're a member of a community.
Committed to the development of the mind and to intellectual inquiry, the St. Mary’s Family enjoys an outstanding reputation for excellence in teaching and learning. Over 80 percent of the faculty have earned Master’s degrees or beyond. Faculty collaborate and inspire one another, wholly devoting their energies to each student’s learning potential. Student energy and drive qualify for academic and athletic honors, earning these young men and women an outstanding acclaim for achievement among the finest universities and service academies across the land.
St. Mary’s, serving grades 9-12, is about family in Jesus Christ, the Family of Saints and a spirit that will capture your heart. This spirit dwells deep seeded, first born over 150 years ago with the Redemptorists and the School Sisters of Notre Dame, men and women of God on fire with the Church’s mission of evangelization.
As St. Mary’s Saints graduate and move on to higher learning opportunities, our alumni remain loyal to the Family all through life. Each new phase of their lives produces fresh reasons to be grateful for an outstanding foundation in the fundamentals of the faith and a superb initiation into key areas of higher learning. Whether in the classroom or on the athletic field, the learning atmosphere exudes excitement not only to perform well but to excel, to go beyond where you think you can go, to climb to ever new heights. The Family of St. Mary’s welcomes you, challenges you, and supports you along your journey to learn the faith experience, the academic disciplines, and the variety of ways to adopt this mission as your own.
