A Foundation Built on the Rock
At St. Mary Help of Christians School, we believe one of the most important decisions parents make is how their child will be educated. You have lots of wonderful options out in the world today, but if you are seeking an education that not only provides solid educational learning opportunities, but also strives to help your child learn through a spiritual lens, where faith is integrated with knowledge, then we invite you to start our application process. If you come across any areas where you have questions or would like to discuss more in-depth, please reach out to our principal, Kelly Kirks, at 320-251-3937 or email@example.com. She always looks forward to talking with parents!

There are so many great things about SMHOCS that makes this school amazing. I could point out the smaller classroom sizes, the outstanding staff led by principal Mrs. Kirks, and the overwhelming sense of community. But most important, is the values of respect, forgiveness, and faithfulness. I couldn’t be happier and strongly invite you to come see for yourself all the amazing things our school has to offer.

St. Mary Help of Christians School is a really special place to be. My daughters love going to school. Along with them gaining a great education, they are learning important values. One of my favorite things about St. Mary’s is how all the grades mingle and treat one another with respect and integrity. It warms my heart.

St. Mary Help of Christians School has been one of the best investment decisions we have made. From the Principal, Teachers and the Staff, they truly care about their students. The smaller class sizes are great and enables the teachers to support each student and teach to their individual strengths and abilities. We love the faith-based environment and the spirit of family and community within. Our experience has been nothing short of AMAZING.

We have always felt our kids had genuine support at school and were safe and cared for. With the smaller class sizes, it has been an amazing environment to watch our kids grow academically, emotionally and spiritually. We are so thankful to have found this special place.
