The Basilica School of Saint Mary is filled with dedicated, professional, and devoted faith-filled men and women. Our school is committed to developing our students into Saints, Stewards, and Scholars. Our patroness, Mary Seat of Wisdom, leads us by her example towards Christ in all that we do, whether it is through daily prayer, weekly Mass, or spiritual events and assemblies. We not only educate our students about God’s presence but provide numerous opportunities for them to grow closer to Him every day.
"They that hope in the Lord will renew their strength,
they will soar on eagles' wings;
They will run and not grow weary, walk
and not grow faint." Isaiah 40:31
