On September 23, 1957, a beautiful autumn day, St. Mary School opened its doors to its first students.

For over 55 years, St. Mary School has been dedicated to faith in education. The curriculum has changed with the times, but the sound of children's learning, laughter and prayers fill the classrooms and hallways just as they did on that first day.

At St. Mary's School, your child can enjoy childhood a little longer, in a setting of academic excellence and strong Catholic values. As a community, St. Mary's School is dedicated to rigorous academics, creative exploration and spiritual growth. St. Mary's is much more than a school. It is a family of parents, teachers, grandparents, staff, parishioners and alumni working together for the good of our children. We are blessed with a dedicated faculty and supportive pastor and parish, all working together for the benefit of our students.

St. Mary's School is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (the last reaccreditation was in 2018) and the Connecticut State Department of Education.

On October 2, 2018, St. Mary's School was named a 2018 National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence.
