“My education at St. Mary’s was invaluable. Not only the exceptional academics, but also a solid foundation of Christian values, both of which enabled me to excel in high school, where I quickly surpassed my peers, especially in writing. St. Mary’s offers a rigorous academic environment and fosters a strong work ethic.”
