President's Message

“The Brothers of the Christian Schools write that the purpose of their institute is “….to provide a human and Christian education to the young, especially the poor, according to the ministry which the Church has entrusted to it.” 

The RULE of the Brothers of the Christian Schools

 

“As a Christ-­centered community striving to live the mission of Saint John Baptist de La Salle, Saint Mary’s College High School is a Lasallian Catholic school where diversity and inclusion are essential, and quality education of the whole person is our active ministry. With community support and faith grounded in love, we teach one another to pursue a life of virtue, scholarship, and service.”

Saint Mary’s College High Mission Statement

 

Saint Mary’s College High School’s ministry of providing a human and Christian education continues to be inspired by the writings and vision of Saint John Baptist de La Salle and over 157 years of work and dedication from the Christian Brothers and Saint Mary’s Lay-Educators. Our current programs are also inspired and developed by the Lasallian Traditions, Gospel Values, and our Lasallian Core Principles.

 

I am honored to serve and care for Saint Mary’s College High School and the Lasallian Mission as so many Christian Brothers and non-Brother Lasallian Educators have done before me. The school’s goals and programs are centered around the pillar of the core principles - Faith in the Presence of God. We must also continue to learn to better respect all persons, understand, support, and care for the poor and work harder towards social justice for all, and learn and accept that an Inclusive Community is one community that is seated at God’s table. These core principles, along with a strong academic, athletic, visual and performing arts program, truly represent a Quality Education.

 

Finally, much of our symbolism you may see on this site is represented as a Star. The Star is a sign of faith that has led countless Christian Brothers and members of the Lasallian Family to advance the Lasallian mission for over 300 years. I pray that the Star continues to light the way for Saint Mary’s College High School.
