About Us

Principal's Welcome

Dear Families, 

     Mary of Nazareth School is committed to an educational model of continuous growth and improvement.  This past year provided countless opportunities for our school community to thrive and flourish.  Each of our stakeholders managed to overcome the challenges of Covid-19 through trust, transparency, and grit.  I am excited about the 2021-2022 academic school year and a return to the enriching experiences that separate Mary of Nazareth School from other schools in the area.  Our new and return families will enjoy:

  • Beautiful New Community Space

  • Upgraded Front Entrance

  • Before and Aftercare (PreK-8th Grade)

  • After School Clubs and Activities

  • Reopening of the STREAM Lab

  • Return of all specials, including PE, Art, Music, Computers, Spanish, and Library.

  • One to One Devices in Middle School (MoN Chromebook Provided)

  • Weekly Intramurals for Middle School 

  • In-person Mass 

  • CYO Sports

  • Spring Musical 

  • School traditions such as Back to School Picnic, Race for Scholars, Grandparents Day, Christmas Concert, Spirit Day, Catholic Schools Week activities, and May Crowning

As you review our school programs, you will quickly recognize that Mary of Nazareth School works diligently to provide a learning environment that is engaging, supportive, and enriching. Our strength lies in our steadfast Catholicity, common values, and desire to raise children of faith. 

The students of Mary of Nazareth School are constantly challenged to excel academically, live virtuously, and treat one another with Christian charity. Our staff's willingness to positively impact the development of each student is unwavering. Working together to achieve our school mission and lead the children to a greater understanding of discipleship is not only our motivation, it is our responsibility.

I welcome you to learn more about our school community and encourage you to contact Mrs. Maryellen Wray at  for information about open houses, school tours, and student shadow visits.
