Class Experiences

  • Sophomores travel to Washington D.C. each January to participate in the “For God and Country: A Washington D.C. Citizenship Experience” where they participate in a peaceful “March for Life”. This valuable social justice experience exposes our young people to hundreds of thousands of people that believe in the same cause, “Life”. Coming from our small rural area, this in itself, has a large impact on our youth. They experience our nation’s capital and visit many of the museums and monuments gaining some understanding of the arts and history of our country. We are very proud to be distinctively different from our local public school counterparts, and we strive to counteract worldly views and educate our young people in Christ’s teachings daily. St. Mary School continues to work with our young people, preparing them for the future, as they one day become leaders in their own communities.

  • Juniors travel to Stratford, Ontario for a Shakespearean experience, tying in with their curriculum.  The students tour a Costume & Prop Warehouse and see three plays, all differing in genre: a Broadway musical, a Shakespearean tragedy and a drama. The class also takes part in a Stage Combat Workshop where they learn how stage fights are performed, and have a chance to demonstrate what they learn! 

  • Seniors research and plan a Mission Trip with the guidance of their advisor. The seniors send a couple delegates to present  a trip proposal to the School Advisory Council for approval and feedback. In the past the students have helped with repairs in churches and schools, spent time visiting the sick and elderly, worked in soup kitchens and food pantries and provided support for the less fortunate wherever the destination they choose. The seniors also make time to have some fun on the trip, taking in local sites and experiencing the different areas they visit.
