Educating Hearts & Minds


A complete education

St. Mary Our Mother School includes instruction in the traditional content areas, as well as Technology, the Arts, and Religion for every child from Pre-K to 6th grade. Saint Mary Our Mother School's curriculum meets the strict requirements of the Diocese of Rochester Department of Catholic Schools and is aligned with the New York State Learning Standards. Courses of study are based on New York State Curriculum and include English Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, Health, Technology, Music, Art, Physical Education, and Religion. All faculty members are certified through the New York State Education Department.

A personal education

Individual attention nurtures the full development of each student. Daily homework instills disciplined work habits. Instructional support is available in all content areas. In addition to teaching the three R's, we also teach Religion, Respect and Responsibility. These values are the cornerstone of a Catholic education.
