School tours are available throughout the school year and are scheduled on an individual basis. Prospective families should contact the school office at (330) 262-8671 to schedule a tour. St. Mary is located at 515 Beall Avenue in Wooster.
Students are accepted on the following priorities: At kindergarten registration time, all siblings of students already attending the school (k-8) will be given first priority; the next priority is given to all actively registered parish families, followed by all others. At re-registration time, current St. Mary School children will be given first priority; the next priority is given to children of St. Mary parishioners (a parishioner is understood to be one who is registered in the parish, attends and financially supports the parish on a regular basis), followed by all others.
Here are some reasons we love St. Mary school:
*We like that the Catholic faith is integrated throughout the
school day with morning prayer, religion class every day, school
Mass on Wednesdays and closing prayer each afternoon.
*We like the small class sizes.
*My son has been able to go on numerous field trips and do
service projects over the years which have enhanced his classroom
*The faculty and staff are committed to providing a good academic
foundation as well as instilling strong values and character in each student.
*After seven years at St. Mary day school, I know our son has gotten a great
educational foundation for his future in high school, college and beyond.

My wife and I have chosen to send our sons to St. Mary School because its first-class education is embedded in a close-knit community, and its rigorous academic curriculum is enriched with core Catholic values. Without being dogmatic or closed-minded, we think the school's small class sizes, empathetic and supportive faculty and staff, and unique history and location in our small town offer an unparalleled opportunity for our sons to grow in faith, character, and knowledge.

I brought my son to Saint Mary’s for his 3rd grade year. We were influenced by his Godparents and other friends. When given the tour before he started, I was surprised at how much more Saint Mary offered! The way religion is taught, Spanish classes, one on one from teachers, priests, anyone teaching or involved in Saint Mary community just to name a few. It feels like family! What I have noticed the most going into my sons 7th grade year is the maturity and understanding of his purpose with the Lord, school work ethics and how to be a good person. Coming from a public school to Saint Mary school was the best decision my family could have ever made. As a family we have grown closer to God. For my son he has had many more opportunities through all educational aspects above and beyond public schools. Looking ahead at older Saint Mary students who have gone through high school ahead of their class, and graduating with honors, scholarships and outstanding colleges we see a future for our son. This is the best investment any parent could offer their children.
