The Basilica School of Saint Mary is a parish school within the Diocese of Arlington, operating under the auspices of the Office of Catholic Schools. We are a fully-accredited school through the Virginia Catholic Education Association.

The Basilica School of Saint Mary educates the whole child by promoting spiritual, emotional, intellectual, social and physical development in a nurturing, Catholic setting. We challenge each student to attain their fullest potential while developing a true sense of self-esteem founded in a solid Catholic curriculum. Students are summoned to develop their God-given potential. The curriculum at our school is designed and outlined by the Diocese of Arlington Office of Catholic Schools.
