MISSION STATEMENT

To Provide Quality Academic Programs in an Environment Fostering Respect for Faith, Family, Others and Self

PHILOSOPHY

St. Mary’s educational philosophy is founded on the Episcopal tradition of academic excellence, regular worship, service learning, and physical well-being.  Our purpose is to foster an education that seeks to develop each student academically while providing a values-centered, character-building education to prepare each student to live a creative, humane, and compassionate life, worthy of a child of God.  Our curriculum combines the best of 21st century learning skills offering an ideal learning environment capable of stimulating the fullest potential within each child.  Special care is taken to challenge each child’s unique abilities and interests while guiding all students to be respectful, responsible, and resourceful.

St. Mary's is a Parish Day School, partnered in ministry with its namesake, St. Mary's Episcopal Church, Edmond, OK.  Operating as a Parish Day School, the purpose of the School is to provide for the education, enrichment, and spiritual nurture of its students.

The School operates exclusively for charitable, educational, and religious purposes under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, or corresponding section of any future federal tax code.
