St. Mary’s is a Catholic School in the Diocese of La Crosse following the Diocese curriculum. As a Catholic School we will teach and advocate our Catholic Faith.  All students are welcome in our school, and all parents and legal guardians must understand that Catholic Doctrine will be taught.  The passing on of our Catholic Faith is our number one priority.

St. Mary’s School respects the dignity of each individual and, therefore, will not discriminate on the basis of race, nationality, ethnic origin, or gender in regard to enrollment or hiring practices.
