DIRECTOR OF ADMISSIONS

 Kim Lemons

 

 

Thank you for your interest in St. Mary’s School!  You must be curious to know what makes St. Mary’s School different from other private schools.

As a school that offers excellent academic instruction that stimulates a passion for learning, provides a family-like community, and small class sizes that nurture and support the development of each child, we are unique.

 

In addition to my role as the Director of Admission, I am the parent of two daughters, one at St. Mary’s School and one at Sacred Heart of Jesus High School.  I have witnessed first-hand how the environment here has enriched their lives and helped them grow academically, socially, and spiritually.

 

We encourage you to stop by and visit our school and see for yourself what makes St. Mary’s School such a special place and why it has maintained its outstanding reputation for over 135 years.  If you would like to fill out an application, please select the Online Application link below.  Or, if you are just inquiring and would like our Viewbook sent to you, please select the New Student Online Inquiry tab below and I will contact you as soon as possible.

 

I look forward to hearing from you!

TESTING COORDINATOR

Cathy Starosta  

                                                

As the Testing Coordinator I will schedule a time to meet with your child to administer a Reading, Math, and Writing assessment.  I enjoy welcoming the newest Blue Angels to St. Mary’s School.  It is a joy to watch them learn, grow, and meet new friends.  Thank you for considering St. Mary’s School for the education of your child.
