Rich history and culture

At St. Mary's we educate the whole person - mind, body, and spirit. We openly welcome people from all faith traditions, and our Marianist tradition keeps us true to our core goals of educating for formation in faith, providing excellent education, educating in the family spirit, educating for service, justice and peace, and educating for adaptation and change.

Outside the classroom, students translate theory into action through hands-on research, real-world internships, and study and service in the local community and around the globe.

More than 70 percent of St. Mary's students volunteer for community service. More than 100 clubs and student organizations offer opportunities for St. Mary's students to plan and organize events and promote worthy causes.
