Quality Faith-Based Education
The goal of St. Mary School is to prepare your child for a global community through faith-based education. We strive to develop skills that encourage students to be lifelong learners, to make educated decisions rooted in Catholic values, and to be leaders in service. We focus on the total person and utilize age-appropriate curriculums which nurture each child’s intellectual, emotional, physical, social, moral and spiritual needs. As a private school, we are free to promote your values in a direct, forthright manner – the same way you do in your home. We create a strong Christian foundation upon which to build the support systems that enable each student to be a thriving, contributing member of society.
High Academic Standards
At St. Mary Catholic School we strive to continue academic growth and success in each student. Every student will be provided with a sound academic education centered on reading, writing, math, science and religion based on the Diocese of Green Bay and Wisconsin State Standards. Students are exposed to the arts and are active participants in the Mass. When students have completed their education here, they are instilled with a sense of confidence, Christian faith and values. And they have a network of friendships that last a lifetime.
At St. Mary Catholic School, we offer a well-balanced, comprehensive curriculum for 3K through grade 6. The curriculum revolves around the religious dimension of the school, focusing on learning, prayer, and service. Our sound academic platform is centered on reading, writing, math, science, and the arts based on the Diocese of Green Bay and Wisconsin State Standards. We also emphasize handwriting and phonics. Our goal is to meet and exceed these curriculum standards.
Students with special needs have access to a speech therapist, reading specialist, and school psychologist. Our low student-to-teacher ratio allows for individualized attention daily. Your child has the opportunity to excel toward his/her learning potential.
Student to Teacher Ratio
The student-to-teacher ratio at St. Mary Catholic School is less than 10:1, which means your child receives more one-on-one attention. This low ratio is an invaluable asset in meeting the diverse needs of the individual students. Young children thrive under the close attention and support of caring teachers. Children who need extra help get that help. Children who demonstrate an advanced understanding and talents in certain areas can be challenged. This ratio also allows for greater flexibility in the classroom structure. Parents in large cities throughout the U.S. pay thousands of dollars in tuition each year to give their children a learning opportunity like we have right here at St. Mary Catholic School in Hilbert.
Music, Art and Language
We realize the importance of integrating the arts into our curriculum in order to create well-rounded students, nurture talents, and enhance learning. All children attend music, art and foreign language classes weekly. Art projects are integrated into lessons across the curriculum.
A spiritual environment is provided in which students can better understand, experience, live and apply their faith. All instructors are religion certified through the Diocese of Green Bay. Students are offered sacramental preparation for First Reconciliation and First Communion. Mass is celebrated with all students on Tuesdays and on special Holy Days. Students participate in Reconciliation about once per month and Stations of the Cross during Lent. Students take active roles in planning and participating in the liturgy as servers, readers, gift bearers, and choir members. Liturgies become meaningful even for the youngest students.
