An Introduction to St. Mary Catholic School

Welcome to St. Mary Catholic School, at the heart of Catholic education since 1916!

St. Mary Catholic School is the cornerstone of Catholic education in Woodstock, Illinois and throughout central McHenry County.  Our school welcomes all families who believe in commitments to Catholic education, Christian values, exemplary academic achievement and a superior pre-school through eighth grade elementary school curriculum.

Families choose St. Mary Catholic School for an education that integrates Catholic religious instruction and advanced preparatory academics, while supporting the Christian virtues and morals taught in the home.

St. Mary offers pre-school, all day Kindergarten, elementary classes from 1st through 5th grade and junior high classes from 6th through 8th grade.

Daily religious education, a weekly all-school Mass, and sacramental preparation place the Catholic faith at the center of St. Mary Catholic School’s mission.

Older students mentor our younger students through our prayer partner program. This bond develops and supports a special relationship between students that lasts throughout their school years.

St. Mary students, on average, place one to three grade levels above the average school grade level on the Iowa Test of Basic Skills and more than two-thirds of St. Mary School graduates achieve honor roll status during their high school years.

St. Mary School offers many physical amenities including a complete auditorium, large gymnasium, cafeteria serving hot lunch daily, advanced IT Lab, library and dedicated art studio/classroom.

St. Mary’s “Fighting Irish” offers a full array of athletics including basketball, volleyball, football, track and cheerleading.

Financial aid is available.
