My daughter is a 1st grader at St. Mary Catholic School and has been there since Kindergarten. They teach the children how to be "peacebuilders" which is a program that teaches respect and care for others and yourself. Not only does the school TEACH this concept but they LIVE the concept. The teachers expect this behavior from the children and establish a loving but strict environment in their classrooms. In addition to this, my daughter is learning so much and I feel that the education provided by St. Mary's school is second to none. I know it is a financial investment in education however it is worth every penny and I would make the same decision all over again.
My 11-year old son has learned to love school and to do his best for himself. He has developed responsible and dependable habits. St. Mary's has done so much for him academically as well as spiritually and personally.
I went to St.Mary kindergarten all the way through 8th grade! And even though it is strict in ways it was the best time of my life! I will never forget anyone of my classmates or any of my wonderful teachers! It was a great way to learn my Catholic Faith! I love it! It is definitely a great school for your child to learn all they can and be the best person they can be!

Great school. For the price of after school daycare for the entire year in public school, we instead for the same price got a wonderful faith based caring Catholic school with a low parent/teacher ratio. Check it out yourself.
Our family cannot say enough great things about St. Mary's. We pulled our kids out of public school to attend. The teacher to student ratio is low and our kids excel with so much individual attention. The parents and teachers not only care about the students but also the Greeley community getting kids involved in a variety of community service projects. Finally, this school is the safest school around with all visitors having to be checked in and let through a locked door. Something you will not get at a public school! This faith community is awesome and for a private school one of the lowest in tuition in Northern Colorado. Check it out for yourself. You will not be disappointed.
We have been very impressed with All aspects of St. Mary's. The community at this school is devoted to a well rounded school experience with emphasis on creating thoughtful and caring individuals who are not afraid of being counter cultural and selfless. Faith formation is top rate, and all academic strengths and weaknesses are concentrated on so that every student excels to their potential with truly loving faculty and staff. We love this school!
St. Mary's School has excellent academic programs and standards. Low student to teacher ratio keeps students engaged, encouraged, and eager to learn. Extra effort is made to include a variety of options for extra curricular activities. It rivals the public schools in the area with such offerings as after school dance, band, chess club, and sports such as volly ball, basket ball, and community league soccer. Parental involvement is key in the exceptional atmosphere of caring education. All families are committed to 25 volunteer hours per year, and many go above and beyond that requirement because parental involvement in the education of the students is seen as a responsibility of the entire community of St. Mary's. Though a Catholic school, St. Mary's welcomes families from all religious backgrounds who see education as a vitally positive process.
