For Students

"Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them;
 for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."
 Matthew 19, 14

At St. Mary's, we believe that each student

  • is created in the image of God
  • is unique and irreplaceable
  • has a purpose according to God’s will
  • is more than a mind and has spiritual and emotional needs that must be addressed
  • will find his or her true identity by listening to and obeying Christ
  • has the potential to bring the light of the gospel to dark places
  • has a strong need for validation and affirmation
  • has been blessed with valuable gifts that need to be developed
  • needs to grow in awareness of his or her own potential and strength
