Our curriculum of study provides a basic framework in the academic areas of Religion, Mathematics, Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, the Fine Arts, Physical Education and Technology. We work within the curriculum guidelines of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia (link to web site). How these guidelines are implemented is the creative challenge of faculty members, who understand the multiple ways their students learn and integrate various methods of teaching and assessment into their classroom strategies. The professional development of our faculty is a priority. Teachers are required to update their professional certificates through in-service, workshops and other forms of continuing education throughout the year.

In addition to our core curriculum, the following special academic services are provided for the students of St. Mary.

Honors math, grades 4-8
Title One reading specialist and librarian
Remedial math, reading, and study skills
   instruction through Catapult Learning
Mentally gifted program through School
