    Loving staff who cares about their students. The atmosphere is one of 1. God 2. Family 3. St. Mary’s. Great Co-Divisional model that can now educate the whole family!
    So many things to love about St. Mary’s. The staff is at everything-games, helping NHS on weekend mornings. The stay late and arrive early mentality. The new headmaster is outstanding.
    Tons of college classes and students graduate with a lot of credit. It is quite academic and service oriented. You hear a lot about athletics, which are great, but so are the ministry and classrooms. Boys become men. High expectations and lots of support.
