St. Mary follows the Graded Courses of Study prepared by the Cleveland Diocesan Education office. The curriculum flows from the philosophy and goals of Catholic education, infuses the social justice teachings of the Church, the rights of children, Catholic faith and values, and are aligned with the Ohio Academic Content Standards and the Common Core State Standards. Students take the Measure of Academic Performance (MAP) tests in Reading and Math in grades K-2, and Reading, Language Arts and Math in grades 2-8. While assessments convey our academic excellence, test scores are only one piece of information. We also consider the child, we foster spiritual, intellectual, social and physical development.
