Our Philosophy

  • Provide a safe, nurturing, and secure environment in which students can encounter the living God, who in Jesus Christ reveals His transforming love and truth. 
  • Partner with parents to support students in their learning and in their search for knowledge, meaning, and truth.
  • Provide opportunities for regular prayer and worship. 
  • ​Integrate Catholic faith with all learning.
  • Create a Catholic climate that contributes to the foundation of students and families as active participants in the parish community.
  • ​Promote life-long learning that advances the development of the whole person - mind, body, and spirit.
  • ​Foster a culture of educational excellence through critical thinking skills, innovative and rigorous curriculum standards, a global perspective and emphasis on moral education, community, and service.
  • Graduate students who are prepared to become productive, virtues citizens and church leaders who will fashion a more humane and just world.

​​St. Mary’s School is an integral ministry of the parishes of St. Mary, St. Augustine, and St. Francis of Assisi.
We welcome 3-year-old Preschool through Grade 5 students from Tomahawk, Wisconsin and the surrounding areas.

Our commitment to high quality, faith-based education is founded on the mission of the Catholic Church.  Our students are introduced to the skills they need to succeed in the modern world and are guided to develop the confidence to practice those skills.  We foster a Christian community of loving, knowledgeable, and faithful servants of Christ by sharing God’s word and instilling Catholic values.We believe that every child is a unique creation of God and is treated as such.  We strive to develop the whole child through prayer, family involvement, service, and excellence in education.
