PHILOSOPHY:

With the guidance and support of the Parish and School Board, Mary, Star of the Sea School is committed to providing a Christ-centered education that reflects academic excellence.  Students are challenged to become confident, lifelong, and independent learners.  

Mary, Star of the Sea School encourages students to become active Christians and responsible citizens who value healthy environmental practices and kindness towards others.  Students are given opportunities to utilize their gifts and talents to serve the needs of the community.  

Educators work in partnership with students and parents; they serve as facilitators and role models in an inquiry- based environment to help students reach their full potential in mind, body, and spirit. 

VALUES

Mary, Star of the Sea School curriculum is structured to foster growth in our students to become life-long independent learners. Our low teacher-student ratio allows for regular individualized guidance and differentiated learning opportunities. Our programs promote the incorporation of technologies in authentic and meaningful ways. 

Mary, Star of the Sea School supports the need to develop self-aware, confident individuals who learn to work collaboratively and to acquire technology fluency, effective communication, problem solving, and leadership skills. In addition to regular core subject classes, specialized instruction in the Performing and Visual Arts, Foreign Languages and Physical Education, nurtures the development of the whole child. A specialized curriculum is also available for international students. Our grades K-8 English as a Second Language (ESL) program provides both individualized instruction and classroom integration opportunities.
