St. Mary Alumni News

We love our St. Mary Alumni!

Each year, at least 25 eighth grade graduates join our prestigious Circle of Alumni. This means that over the past 50 years, the St. Mary Interparochial School Circle of Alumni has grown to over 1,000 people!

We hope our alumni join us this year as we celebrate our St. Mary community, friends, and family through our many events!

This year, we will hold the event on Wednesday, October 4 at St. Mary Interparochial School. If you or any other alumni are interested in representing your Catholic high school, please email with their name, high school, name and email of the admission director or equivalent. Thank you!
