First and foremost, our families, faculty and staff make us special! It is through our shared commitment to the mission of faith, gospel values and academic excellence that we come together to serve our students, our parish and our community. Our dedicated and caring staff work closely with parents and students to foster a lifelong love of learning, and our close-knit, family oriented atmosphere provides a warm and loving environment where lasting friendships are made and our students thrive.
Our Balance between Tradition and Innovation
At St. Mary Magdalene, we teach the whole child - mind, body and spirit. Our students are taught the traditional subjects of Reading, Writing, Math, Science, Language Arts and Social Studies from PreK3 through 8th grade. In addition, we still teach cursive handwriting, Music, Art, foreign language and Physical Education as part of our curriculum. This is further enhanced with the use of the latest technology and ongoing computer instruction. Daily religious instruction reinforces our morals and values, and teaches our children to build character and to serve our community.
Our Commitment to Service
At St. Mary Magdalene Catholic School, we serve all. We place special emphasis on serving others within our school, our parish and our community. From our PreK students to our 8th grade students, from our faculty and staff to our parents, we heed God's call to serve one another in a variety of ways.
With 315 students, St. Mary Magdalene is the perfect sized school, enabling us to offer a wide variety of classes, Middle School electives, after-school clubs, extra-curricular activities, academic competitions and athletic opportunities to our students, yet we are small enough to maintain a close and intimate community. St. Mary Magdalene Catholic Community is a large parish (serving over 3,400 families) and provides our school families with extensive resources and opportunities for involvement.
A Catholic school is more than just a school with religious symbols, texts and weekly Mass attendance. In a true Catholic school, spiritual growth is an integral part of all instruction. Whether in Math class, Social Studies or Religion class, Catholic ideals permeate student instruction. Instruction in the Catholic faith would not be complete without teaching our students to live that faith in their everyday lives. Students and staff put Catholic teaching into practice through projects that encourage students to examine and implement Catholic social teaching. Educators strive to use classroom management techniques which embody Gospel values and model those values to students every day.
