Dear Prospective Parents,


Thank you for your interest in Saint Mary's Catholic School. As the primary educators of your child, it is important for you to choose a school that best suits your child's needs and best supports you in your role as a parent, and you also need to consider the religious formation of your child. We believe that Saint Mary's is the perfect place for students to thrive academically and spiritually, and we hope you will consider becoming part of our school family!

Saint Mary's is a Catholic elementary school comprised of 3-Year-Old Kindergarten through Eighth Grade and is located in beautiful downtown Greenville, South Carolina. Steeped in the Catholic tradition and sponsored by a parish founded in 1852, Saint Mary's School serves both third and fourth generation families and those who are new to the Greenville area. We are blessed at Saint Mary's to have exceptional facilities, an outstanding and experienced staff, the presence of the Dominican Sisters of Saint Cecilia, and a well-rounded program that challenges students to strive for excellence in all they do. Saint Mary's is committed to forming the whole child in academic excellence, athletic challenge, artistic expression, and character formation.


Please take time to explore our website to learn about our school, and when you are ready for more information, please schedule a tour with our Admissions Director.


The Lord has richly blessed us here at Saint Mary's, and I invite you to join us in receiving the grace He pours out in this community. Thank you for your interest in our school, and please be assured of my prayers for you and your family.


In Our Lady of the Sacred Heart of Jesus,

Mr Steven Zimmerman
