St. Mary Catholic School - Hilbert, WI

A Message from the Principal & Pastor

It is an awesome experience to be among our great faith community of St. Mary in Hilbert. It is inspiring to see the beautiful St. Mary Catholic School and the remarkable Catholic education the school has passed on to the young people in this small village of Hilbert throughout the years.

We are proud of our historic school building, state-of-the-art technology, and our dedicated teachers, staff, board of education, and volunteers. With this solid foundation we are able to focus on providing an exceptional education of the total person by beautifully integrating academic excellence and faith formation. This focus also includes fostering attitudes, values, and character building.

We invite you to become a part of the committed team of parents, teachers, and parishioners. It truly is remarkable to see our children grow physically, intellectually, and spiritually. Scripture assures us: “Train children the way they should go; and even when they are old, they will not swerve from it.” (Proverbs 22:6). We are delighted to teach our children the way they should go. May all our children be Christ-like, as they “grow in age, wisdom and favor before God and people.” (cf. Luke 2:52)

With Kindest Regards and God’s Blessings,

Rev. Michael E. Betley, Pastor
Mrs. Chandra Sromek, Principal

Our Mission is to Educate, Inspire knowledge, Encourage and Celebrate service in the Catholic Faith.

A Balanced, Comprehensive Curriculum

We believe education should inform and inspire students in mind, body and spirit. Our curriculum is based on the Diocese of Green Bay and State of Wisconsin standards and designed to seamlessly blend faith and education. During all class periods and subjects, we integrate faith teaching and encourage students to participate through conversation, questions, and insightful comments.

St. Mary is now a Choice School

We are pleased to announce that St. Mary's is now participating in the Wisconsin Parental Choice Program, also known as School Choice Program. The program is designed to help income qualified families send their child(ren) to the participating private school of their choice. The private school receives an aid payment from the State of Wisconsin that covers tuition.

Supporting Catholic Education

We believe in building a strong educational and faith foundation for our students and children of the Hilbert area. Thank you to all our supportive parents and patrons for your continued support of St. Mary Catholic School and Catholic education. Through your dedicated support and volunteering, we’re able to provide a superior faith-based education.
