Why Mary Immaculate?

Mary Immaculate School imparts a quality Catholic education in all aspects of living. Our goal is to holistically form students who will leave academically, emotionally, and spiritually prepared to continue their education, serve their communities, and use their talents to make a difference. Our graduates, respected and sought after by public and private high schools, are shining examples of the success of our mission.

A Catholic education through Mary Immaculate School provides a foundation for lifelong learning through:

  • Rigorous academic standards (National Blue Ribbon School; working approx. 1 year ahead of public schools in math and language arts)
  • Well-rounded life experiences
  • Strong moral compasses (personal responsibility, assimilation of cultures, civic concern, positive societal values and attitudes)
  • Monthly school-wide service projects plus various grade-wide service projects
  • Leadership opportunities
  • Creativity stimulation within the individual to maximize personal gifts

Plus, at the heart of everything we do is our Catholic faith!


“MIS is truly a home away from home for my family. We are part of a great community that helps us to grow in both our faith and friendships. Wonderful teachers have helped my kids grow so much over the last three years.”
