Senior class parents and students are reminded to log on to and to register for the SAT and ACT Tests.


Each year the master (SMHS) calendar includes the dates of the ACT and SAT.  These college admissions tests are not offered on the SM campus.  We promote the dates as a courtesy to our students for planning purposes.  Students are required to register for these tests through an online portal.  At that time, test takers may choose a location that serves as a national testing site.


Students and parents are advised to read and study the requirements for initial eligibility formulated in the Guide for the Collegebound Student Athlete.  Access to this guide is available on the NCAA  website at

 Host Families Needed


For the 2017-2018 school year, St. Mary's High School will continue to admit students from China and Brazil to our school. This program is in partnership with Twinn Palms, a firm that organizes the homestay component.


As we look forward to the next school year, we need families to ensure that all our international students are well accommodated. For your consideration, host families will receive a stipend for each month that a student is in their home. In return, host families will provide meals, transportation to and from school and events, a bedroom for each student, and wireless internet connection. In addition, host families will be required to complete a safe environment training program and a background screening. Medical insurance, uniforms and other campus expenses are covered through the tuition and fees paid by the student's family.


If this program is of interest to you and you wish to receive more information and details on logistics, please email our Twinn Palms' Coordinator, Christina Gotelli Foo at the following information and we will add your family to the interest list. 


  • Family name

  • Students' names and grades in Fall of 2017 (if applicable)

  • City of residence

  • Languages spoken in your home

  • Experience with international student or exchange programs


Please understand that this is not a commitment on your part at this time but an interest in your family to engage in a discussion about this wonderful opportunity.

New Endowment Program


St. Mary's has completed its 140th year as a leading provider of Catholic education. Our  challenge today is to keep Catholic education affordable and accessible to our families. I think you would all agree that in order to be successful academically, spiritually, creatively, socially and physically. we must be financially responsible and fiscally stable.


Adding to the existing Father Fallon and Legacy Endowments, we have created five new endowments t insure the future needs of our students, faculty and programs at St. Mary's High School continue to flourish. These permanent source of income are invested with a  percentage of the income supporting programs. The principal is invested for growth and the Endowments are managed for growth and stability by the school's Foundation The five new Endowments are:


Oblates of St. Francis de Sales Endowment

for Religious Studies


Dominican Sisters of San Rafael Endowment

for language and Fine Arts Programs


Computer Science Endowment

for Computer Science Programs and Technoloby


Faculty Endowment

for St. Marys Faculty


Endowed Chairs

In Honor of Specific Faculty Members


We are embarking on a 10-year assertive plan to increase the endowments by $5 million dollars each year for the next 10 years. This is a $50 million dollar legacy to be used as a resource to help with tuition assistance, faculty support, academic programs, facilities maintenance, increases in costs, enrollment fluctuations and to fund unexpected expenses. Endowment gifts can be cash, stocks, bonds, treasuries, mutual funds, real estate or personal property. Donors may choose to also include St. Mary's High School in their will or as a named beneficiary of a life insurance policy.


You've been a part of our past. We invite you to continue to be part of our futures. This is a historic endeavor and we welcome everyone to participle.


Your kind donation in any amount is very much appreciated.


Respectfully in the Lord

Peter D. Morelli
