St. Margaret Mary School helps to form students of faith, conscience, academic excellence and service in the Catholic tradition. Serving those as Christ did is inherently woven into the fabric of our school life. Parents as the primary educators of their children and St. Margaret Mary School partners with them throughout sacramental preparation.
