St. Mary’s Catholic School

St. Mary’s Catholic School  is the largest Catholic school in the Diocese of Arlington, we serve the children of St. Mary’s parish and other Catholic parishes without schools. We are integrated into the life of the local community, and the city of Alexandria.

Parents of prospective students are encouraged to attend an open house. St. Mary’s holds two open houses each school year. The first is held in November, and the second open house takes place at the end of January.

Our November open house is held in conjunction with open registration for the upcoming school year. Open registration is for children from families who do NOT have students enrolled currently in St. Mary’s Catholic School. Registration packets for the upcoming school year are not available before the November open house.

Both open houses typically are held on a Thursday morning beginning at 8:30 am with a coffee reception in the school gym. Guided tours of the school follow. The morning concludes at 11:00 am. Parking on school grounds is available.

We recommend that parents of prospective students experience a “typical” day at St. Mary’s Catholic School by participating in an open house. Our open houses give guests the only opportunity to enter and observe classes in session. Guests also will have the opportunity to meet and talk with our pastor, principal, and student ambassadors from the National Junior Honor Society.

The school is shown individually on a very limited basis. We strongly encourage parents to attend an open house.
