Building a Foundation for a Lifetime— Focusing on Strong Academics,
Spiritual Growth and Social and Physical Development
A History of Success
St. Mary's School is celebrating 55 years of serving families in
Mendocino and Lake Counties with a continuing commitment to developing
each student's academic and personal excellence. Inspired by the
dream to have a Catholic school in Ukiah, Father Celestine Quinlan
strived to make it come true. Classes were first held in 1953 for
1st through 6th grades, and has since grown to offer classes from
Kindergarten through 8th grade, including a Library, Spanish Classroom,
and Computer Lab.
A History of Achievement
Studies have shown both the effectiveness and quality of a Catholic
education. Not only are St. Mary's graduates well prepared for high
school, college and careers, but they are also more likely as adults,
to be active leaders in their church and community.
Today's young people represent a future generation of leaders in
America. We believe they deserve the opportunity to receive a strong,
quality education to help them make a difference in this ever-changing
world. Partial scholarships and tuition assistance are available.
St. Mary of the Angels Catholic School
- known in the community for its high academic
standards, drawing from both Catholic and non-Catholic families.
- known for its dedicated and experienced teachers
who support and ensure that each student is academically challenged
in a positive and caring learning environment.
- providing more than an education. We are a
school made up of parents, faculty and students working together.
We recognize parents as the primary educators as we create an
atmosphere for learning that combines structure and creativity
while fostering an enthusiasm for lifelong learning.
- a safe environment to learn-physically, emotionally,
and spiritually-a place where the ideas of others are welcome.
Making a Difference
in Our Community
At St. Mary's students are taught from an early age to reach out
and help others in the community. By visiting nursing homes, supporting
Plowshares, and running food and donation drives, students learn
the values of caring and giving by reaching out and helping people.

Students also excel in community-based softball, baseball, basketball,
and soccer teams.
