Under the guidance of Mary Immaculate Catholic Church and with the Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia (beginning with the 2019-20 school year), we nurture the spiritual development of our students by providing a strong foundation in the Catholic Christian faith.
Our students benefit from faith formation through daily religion classes, weekly Mass and monthly service opportunities. Each school day begins with prayer, and Christian values are woven into our curriculum. Older students are paired with younger prayer partners to inspire both partners in their spiritual growth.
Sacramental preparation is an integrated part of the curriculum, with a focus on Reconciliation & First Communion in second grade and Confirmation in eighth grade.
Faculty members mentor students, and guidance programs focus on developing positive self-image and interpersonal skills as well as helping students take ownership for achieving academic success and making responsible choices.
As part of our curriculum, Mary Immaculate School uses Be My Disciples to introduce and reinforce the timeless truths of our Catholic faith—doctrine, Scripture, and the liturgical year—every year on every grade level to provide a transformative catechesis encouraging the integration of faith and life. The religion curriculum also includes a web-based component, which students and their families can access to enhance faith formation at home and at school.
Weekly School Masses
We invite you to join us for School Masses, which are held on most Fridays during the school year. See our School Calendar for exceptions. School Masses are celebrated every Friday with students participating as greeters, lectors, altar servers, and choir and band members.
These faith celebrations give students the opportunity to extend classroom learning and come together as a Catholic community. Parents and guests are encouraged to attend and are also invited to other prayer services during the school year, which includes praying the rosary, Stations of the Cross, and May Crowning.
Community service is one way that our students work to incorporate their faith in their daily life and it is also an integral part of the religion curriculum. In addition to various classroom projects such as letters to our military or book collections for local hospitals, school-wide service projects are implemented on a monthly basis. Through performing these service projects, students gain a sense of human compassion, learn the importance of civic responsibility, and realize the blessings bestowed upon them.
