 SMTV To Broadcast SJS Sections



SMRamsTV has been selected by the CIF Sac Joaquin Section and our parent company that we are affiliated with (the NFHS Network) to broadcast all 12 section championship basketball games live on March 3-4 from the Spanos Center at UOP.  This is a tremendous honor for our program.  The students who work on these games will be paid and they will be receiving experience they can list on their resume.  In addition, our broadcasting program is receiving an honorarium for our efforts.


These games will be available for viewing on the NFHS Network using the subscription card that was provided at the start of the year.



 STEM Club



The STEM club engaged studendts in experiments involving water rockets and paper bridge challenge. We've also done 'potions class' playing with chemical reactions, laser challenge where they had to shoot lasers off mirrors to go around an obstacle and hit a target and the paper bridge challenge is using 5 pieces of paper to support the greatest number of weights.


The STEM Club moderated by Ms. Lasiter, brings together students  that enjoy learning about science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The goal of this club is to promote science and math through fun activities, such as engineering design challenges and exploring the world of coding. This club will build members' confidence in their knowledge of science and math, their problem solving skills, and give them an opportunity to explore their own ideas and interests in STEM.



 Registration 2017-2018



Course Catalogs are now available online here or here. A Schedule Worksheet will be included. Students and parents are strongly urged to review the student's planned courses for next year. 


The $300 nonrefundable Registration Fee is due prior to Registration. Payment deadline is March 10, either through your FACTS account or in person to the Main Office

On March 17th, the forms will be returned to the students to take home for parent's approval and signature.

Next Years


Next Years


Next Years


If parents have questions about the appropriateness of what the student has selected and do not wish to approve, it is essential that a counselor be contacted and the issue be resolved before the Registration days. In order to encourage students and parents to consider course selection seriously, make the most efficient use of available staff members, and help defer clerical costs, there will be a $25 fee for any schedule changes.


Beginning Fall 2017, St. Mary's offers a new course, Computer Science Principles, to students in grades 10-12 (see Course Catalog for details). This is an elective online course. Students complete assignments online according to the course calendar, and formal assessments are proctored on campus. This course is designed to introduce students to important concepts in programming. Students will learn about data abstraction, algorithms, large data sets, the Internet and cyber security, and other topics as time permits. Students will also learn to create programs in the JavaScript language.

No previous programming experience is required. Programming assignments may be completed on the iPad, via the Safari browser, or on any internet connected computer with a modern web browser. Sign up at registration for this exciting opportunity to learn programming concepts.



Dear St. Mary's Parents and Guardians,


As we begin the "Re-Enrollment" process for the 2017-18 school year, we are reminded and appreciative of the great trust you have placed in St. Mary's High School by your decision to send your son or daughter to our school. We are aware that this is a decision that involves sacrifice and commitment for our school families. The administration, faculty, staff, Board of Directors, and I are committed to providing the best Catholic education for all of our students. 

Evidence of this commitment is demonstrated:

  • 68 dedicated faculty members, 44% hold masters or advance degrees

  • Student to faculty ratio is 12 to 1

  • Average classroom size is 25

  • Every student takes 7 classes - each class meets 4x per week

  • We offer 23 Honors & AP courses

  • Last year, we gave 425 AP exams and our students surpassed the national and state averages

  • At the end of last school year, we had 67 national AP scholars

  • 92% of our juniors and seniors take upper division mathematics

  • 92% of our juniors and seniors take upper division science

  • We have a 100% graduation rate

  • About 99% of our seniors go onto college

  • Class of 2016 was offered $15,598,716 in scholarships

  • Of the Class of 2016, 75% went to a four-year college and 25% went to a two-year college


We are sensitive to increasing tuition, regardless of the amount, recognizing it sometimes presents hardships for families. We work very hard to provide a variety of ways to help families pay for tuition. You may know that St. Mary's tuition is very reasonable in comparison to other Catholic high schools.


Likewise, we are concerned for our teachers and staff that they are compensated fairly. We are making attempts to keep their salaries competitive.


The Board's Finance Committee in collaboration with the Board of Directors, has established the "Tuition and Fee Schedule" for the 2017-18 school year.  This schedule is also available online using the school website.  The Board of Directors, the administration, and Finance Committee have all worked very hard to limit the average increase in school tuition to approximately 2% increase or $170.00, which translates to an increase of approximately $17.00 per month.

Families of returning students will need to pay the $300.00 registration fee by March 10 online at Freshmen accepted to St. Mary's will receive Registration details in the coming weeks.

Tuition will also cover all class fees,, Schoology, PowerSchool and school- wide testing (PSAT, Kaplan's Practice ACT).

Catholic Students                            $ 8670.00

Non-Catholic Students                     $ 9070.00


You should know that based on current year figures our cost per student to educate each child is $11,000.00.  The difference is made up from tuition assistance, scholarships and fundraisers.  Because of our belief in the importance of Catholic education, we continue to provide families with many opportunities to help with tuition.


Please know that we will continue to do everything we can to be good stewards of the tuition and support we receive while adhering to Diocesan guidelines for compensation and other expenses.


Enrolling your child/children at St. Mary's High School indicates your commitment to nurture and provide your children with a quality Catholic education.  It indicates the value you place in having your child know and love their Lord, Jesus Christ; develop life-long Gospel values; to be people of faith; and assist in building the Kingdom of God here on earth.  


I remind you that in making your commitment to provide your children with a Catholic education here at St. Mary's High School, you are committing not only to a financial obligation but to also being a model to your children.


All of us at St. Mary's (faculty and staff), are dedicated to embracing the spirit, inspiring the mind, nourishing the soul, opening the heart, and celebrating the MOST in each child at St. Mary's High School. "Be who you are and be that well."


Respectfully in the Lord,

Peter Morelli

 Welcome Class of 2021



Speech of Soyini Adams on New Parent Night


Hello, my name is Soyini Adams and I am...awkward. This is the absolute truth. I feel awkward waking up, I feel awkward going to bed. I feel awkward even crossing the street or ordering what I want on my Subway sandwich. This has been the case for me for as long as I can remember. Making brand new friends have not been a natural skill for me. Speaking to new people had to be practiced for a while by a subtle push from my family.


I have always felt different from my other peers. For instance, I listen to different music. At a young age, when many other kids prefered to listen to hip hop music or MTV, I actually preferred to listen to jazz. Or, when kids were into reading the Diary of A Wimpy Kid series, I was trying to read classics like Little Women. As you could imagine, fitting in has never been a strong suit of mine.


I actually transferred during my sophomore year. It was time for a change from my previous school, and after much prayer, we felt led by God to enroll into St. Mary’s. Unlike you upcoming Rams, I didn’t attend this school during freshman year. This was another way I did not exactly fit in.


Everybody already seemed to know each other pretty well, have bonded and formed their own social circles, and were pretty established. Coming into St. Mary’s, I did not know a single person. Not a single one. I was out of my comfort zone. Old anxieties of “fitting in” and “being accepted” from my middle school years seemed to briefly return. Plus, I had never EVER been at a Catholic school before. So, yes, you could imagine all the possible ways I was confused and internally panicking. I started to eat by myself or spent my lunches in the library.


On top of that, I did not know it at the time, but I was about to lose one of the most important, if not the absolute most important person in my life. My grandmother was in the hospital.


To give some background context, this is the woman who practically raised me, who instilled my morals and my faith. To lose her was so earth shattering in ways I could not begin to describe. This was all

during only the second month of the school year, during September. And so this lead me further away from being social and “out there”, if you will. I was planning to keep to myself.


This point, however, things started to change for me. I remember sitting at a table in the cafeteria all by myself (just a normal morning for me really) and all of a sudden, there was a group of girls that just came and sat with me. They wanted to know everything about me, my name, my grade, how I was feeling, how I was adjusting. They were just so nice and open that my first thought was, “Are these the kind of popular people you see on teenage movies like the movie Mean Girls?”


 Actually that was not the case at all, because the difference was that they were genuinely interested in

me. They were not fake at all, unlike the Plastics. I started to eat in the cafeteria with them during lunch and made more friends. This was a huge step for me because, up until that point, I was still in the library, and was really hungry from not eating during lunchtime.


Another huge step was when I had joined the fall play, “My Sister Eileen.” There was a day where I missed a performance because I was attending a funeral for my grandmother and I was so surprised the next day to find out that they had prayed for me and my family while I was gone.


Ladies and gentlemen, this is a very significant and unique trait to this school. Coming to St. Mary’s you are joining a family. What is different here than from other high schools is that you will walk into open arms, which is Christ-like when you think about it. People care. The teachers care, the administration cares, the coaches care, the students care for one another. I promise you the community here is pretty tight. It took me a little while to come into to it, but once I was in, I was really in.


There was another point I wanted to bring up. This whole, “Be who you are and be that well” quote we seem to have everywhere. It’s always about “Be who you are and be that well.” There was a slight problem I realized when I saw this quote for the very first time- I had absolutely no idea who I was. I just wasn’t too sure. And it has always been like that for as long as I could remember. I guess this has in some way, contributed to my chronic awkwardness. So, in my sophomore year, I tried new things I

normally would never do. And some I have even ended up liking. Trying theatre during the fall forced me to go out and be in front of an audience, which is not always an easy thing to do.


I also joined the St. Mary’s symphonic band and played the clarinet. I was not exactly….good at playing the clarinet. I only knew five notes. To be perfectly honest, I was scared in band class. I felt like a phony because I didn’t know as much as the other students, but I was able to redirect that fear and I practiced a lot at home. I progressed pretty well, which is a common outcome of hard work and dedication.


And, as it turned out, I was not the only one who was shy in my lack of musical knowledge. Other students felt the same way- they just all happened to be the freshmen.


Another thing I tried was Track and Field. Now, anyone who truly knows me knows that I am truly not a sports person. But I thought I would give this sport a try. No way was I exactly talented at track and field, but I was proud to be doing something outside of my comfort zone. I even got my first sports related injury! However, out of my own personal preference, this sport was something that I may not return to, but at least I tried it and know with certainty an athlete is not “who I am.”


Parents and students, you are about to enter into a complex, confusing, and life changing rites of passage in life-high school. If you thought you were done with it all in middle school, you are sadly mistaken.


All the awkwardness of puberty and middle school does not end. It carries on into high school, college, your career and for the rest of your life unless you truly find out who you are and become comfortable in your own skin. In all honesty, this is not always easy for everyone. It certainly hasn’t been for me. I can tell you right now, when you become a freshmen, though everyone is trying to act cool, everyone is secretly afraid. It’s natural as a freshmen, I promise. But the awkwardness and uncertainty ends when you grow comfortable with yourself, when you decide that you are a unique and important individual with greatness that the world is waiting for you to share.


St. Mary’s High School is a place where you could grow in your potential into whatever it is you have to offer. Our arts and music programs are also very highly qualified. Our math and science clubs have so much to offer to cultivate young geniuses. We have excellent sports programs and are leading in some of the biggest championships. We have so much to help you find you. And on top of that, though many students have different interests, we still end up like a family, which truly is unique for a high school. St. Mary’s is one of a kind and so are you. In my opinion, that is a perfect match.



St. Mary's High School is accepting applications for the 2017-2018 school year.  Please join us for Parent Information Night on Thursday, January 26, 2017 at 6:00pm in the Morelli Gymnasium. Eighth Grade Day is Friday, January 27, 2016. All prospective students must apply to take a placement test. The first placement test will be given on Saturday, January 28, 2016.

St. Mary's is a Catholic, co-educational college preparatory high school dedicated to value-based instruction and a challenging academic environment. St. Mary's enrolls approximately 830 students and strives to develop the total person -- intellectually, spiritually, creatively, socially and physically. St. Mary's draws students from 133 elementary schools located in 28 different cities, some as far as 45 miles away. Out of 68 dedicated faculty members, 44% hold masters or advanced degrees in their related fields of administration, teaching or counseling. Student-to-faculty ratio is 12 to 1. Average classroom size is 25.

At St. Mary's High School, students are encouraged to get involved. We offer 23 Honors and AP courses, 18 visual and performing arts, 17 athletic programs and more than 30 student-organized clubs.

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
