At St. Mary School, we inspire children to dream big. Students from all backgrounds arrive brimming with excitement, then immediately start fulfilling it through coursework, events, counseling and the support of a vast and accomplished teacher and administrator base.

This is what school should feel like—a beautiful campus, our own East Sacramento comfort that makes people want to stay.

Whether you’re a prospective parent or student, here you’ll find a place to learn that feels safe, and a campus full of people who encourage you to push beyond your comfort zone.
