Saint Mary's School - Children Growing in Faith & Wisdom

The ability of St. Mary's School to address the whole child sets this learning community apart from others. In a safe, nurturing environment that features a consistent moral compass, students are free to excel academically and grow into the people God intends them to be.

Offering a unique blending of traditional academics and 21st century technology, Saint Mary's challenges today's students to actively master subject matter.

Encouraged to lead and taught to serve, students graduate from St. Mary's with confidence, well prepared for secondary education and to assume the rights and responsibilities of Christian young adults.

School will reopen on Wednesday, August 26th. It will be a regular, full day of school with PreKindergarten Enrichment and Aftercare available.

There will be a "Meet & Greet" for students entering PreKindergarten, Kindergarten - Grade 3 on Tuesday, August 25th. Incoming 6th grade students and students new to our 7th and 8th grades should plan on attending a "Morning in Middle School" on Tuesday, August 25th. Timing for these events will be announced via summer blog post.

All students (and at least one parent or guardian) entering grade 6 along any students new to our Middle School or recommended for an appointment by faculty will be required to meet with Mrs. Hatch prior to the start of school to review iPad use guidelines and basic procedures. All required forms must also be turned in at that meeting in order for an iPad to be provided to the student.

Click here to access the Sign Up Genius to schedule your appointment on a convenient day and time. Please note that an iPad will not be deployed to a student that needs an appointment if it has not taken place prior to the start of school.

Students returning to grades 7 or 8 and students in Kindergarten through grade 5 will be given their iPads in the first days of school once all required forms have been turned into the school office. Required forms will be part of the August Back to School mailing. Questions should be directed to Mrs. Hatch at dhatch@stmarysimsbury.eduk12.net.

Our mission as a Catholic Parochial school is to foster spiritual and academic growth in a nurturing, safe environment. The educational, physical and cultural experience supports the development of the child in a faith-based community. We strive to instill in our students the desire to know, love and serve God. We endeavor to provide a challenging academic setting that encourages our students to gain mastery of skills and subject matter through active engagement in the learning process.

Faculty and administration, in partnership with each family, encourage students to excel in academics and effectively utilize technology. We aspire to graduate students who are spiritually alert, morally aware and ethically empowered young adults.
