Our Grandson has been a student at Mt. St. Mary’s Academy for 3 years. He is very happy attending school there and likes feeling a bit dressed up when he wears a uniform. His class size has been less than 13 students and there is a great community family feel. We know and always feel that he is in very caring hands at school. There is a lot of love at Mt. St. Mary’s!

My son has been attending MSM since 2nd grade. He loves it and us as parents love it. It is like a huge family and all the children are very respectful. The teachers are awesome and work well with all the children, as each child is at a different level of learning so to speak, they really adapt to each students needs. The sports are great with amazing teams. There are a lot of fundraisers that require participation, but they make them fun and the kids enjoy them. The lines of communication are on point, Everything is online and at our fingertips. Highly recommended “Five stars”. Thank you!

We made the move to Mount Saint Mary Academy when our oldest was in 5th Grade, our middle child was in 1st, and our youngest was in Kindergarten. We moved from public school for a variety of reasons, but never expected all the wonderful “extras” that come with this fabulous school.
I can’t sum up all the blessings that come with this special place, but will try! I believe one of the most important benefits is the community and culture. Our students are so good at welcoming and making each other feel valued and loved. This is lacking in so many other areas of our lives, and so beneficial to the children. The MERCY they are shown and engage in every day, are things that one can’t necessarily quantify but make each student (and their families) better people. I think the students are encouraged to excel and bring their best to all things. This makes learning “cool” and that is not the norm at most public schools. Additionally, there is a deep connection between students, families and staff…a blurring of lines that allows for more positive encouragement for all. The Faith component is powerful, wether one is Catholic or not, we are all encouraged to look beyond and outside of ourselves to help others and be our best selves.
Now, as our youngest is entering the end of 8th Grade, I am struggling with leaving this safe and special place. This second “Home” with people who love my children like their own. I know this foundation will serve to help when challenges present themselves in the future.
It has been one of the best parenting choices we have ever made for our children. We have benefited equally, if not more, by the wonderful things they have shared with us along the way. We have made life-long friends and bonds which is an added bonus.
I feel most blessed to have been able to enjoy this lovely school.
Where do we start…
This school is our home away home. I love the feeling we get walking through the halls. I love the fact that the staff, parents, and children all know each other and care for one another. I couldn’t feel more blessed knowing my son is well loved while getting a wonerful education. I really cant Xpress my true gratitude. Thank you!
