Philosophy Statement

St. Mary of the Assumption School, in partnership with parents, provides a traditional Catholic environment to educate the whole child: spiritually, academically, physically, and socially to each individual's unique potential. Making no distinction regarding gender, race, religion or social position, St. Mary's begins in pre-school to nurture and develop the children entrusted to our care to become faithful Catholics, persons of integrity, productive citizens and life-long learners.

In the culturally and economically diverse community of the Santa Maria Valley, St. Mary of the Assumption School strives to provide a quality pre-school through 8th grade education in a Catholic environment where teachers facilitate opportunities for students to develop spiritually, academically, physically and socially to each individual's unique potential.

Vision Statement

St. Mary of the Assumption School will be the Santa Maria Valley's premier pre-school through 8th grade school recognized for providing innovative education with a curriculum grounded in Catholic beliefs to an academically, racially and socio-economically diverse and excited to learn student body led by the best teachers and most involved parents.
