Who we Are
St. Mary Coptic Orthodox School is a non-profit organization established in 2005 when we opened up our preschool. Our elementary school go up to Fifth Grade.
At our school, we have a unique approach to education, understanding that each child is a unique gift of the Lord, full of potential and gifts. That is why we keep our classrooms small, maximum of 12, so that we can discover those gifts and bring every child to their fullest potentials. We find that our students grow and exceed in every aspect of their lives.
It is the mission of St. Mary School to educate and develop the whole person for the glory of God through adherence to Biblical principles. The school will strive to provide an atmosphere that is conducive to the highest gain of knowledge and skill.
St. Mary School desires to meet the needs of the whole child and to promote spiritual and moral growth, academic and intellectual progress, and physical and social development. Our emphasis is high quality education combined with the knowledge that God’s principles are the confirming basis for our action and understanding. The school’s goal is to reach the academic disciplines and independent study thoroughly. St. Mary School desires to send young people into the world who will be confident, devout Christian leaders. Loving God, the Church, family and our country are the primary concerns of our pilgrim fathers in the education of our children. Students at St. Mary School will be taught of our nation’s heritage, constitution and flag.
Teachers and Staff members function as role models for students. The professional preparation of the instructional staff is a part of the school’s testimony and its commitment to parents to provide quality instruction for its students. We offer large and well equipped classrooms but we keep class sizes small in order to provide personal attention to each child. St. Mary School has the responsibility to provide the best education possible. As Christian educators, we desire to teach each student to accept individual responsibility to God for their actions and to challenge them to glorify God in every facet of the child’s life.
