St. Mary High School doesn’t just give our students an education and experiences that set them up for success in college. We help them succeed in their lives in college and beyond.

About Our School

We are a Small, Personal, and Catholic school that develops the inherent abilities of its students to think independently, communicate effectively and solve problems creatively within a framework of a college prep curriculum and Gospel values.

On the evening of June 21, 1909, ground breaking ceremonies were held for the building of a church for the newly incorporated Catholic parish community of St. Mary of Rutherford.
