St. Mary’s Episcopal School offers a co-educational experience for children ages two through six years old. St. Mary’s provides a child-centered curriculum with individualized instruction that appreciates and reflects each child’s abilities and talents.
Our small school environment and small classes allow for our highly qualified staff to understand each child’s learning style and challenge each child to grow to his or her potential.

Applications may be submitted throughout the school year. A one-time application fee of $35 is due with each application. Acceptance letters, for new students, will be mailed by the first week of March for the upcoming school year. Siblings of current students and parishioners are given first priority as applicants. Contracts are due with deposit by March 8.
Children will be assigned to a class based on their chronological age unless it is in their best interest developmentally to be placed in a class with children who are not within a year of their birthday. The final decision is made by the director using recommendations from teachers and parents.
