Welcome to Saint Mary School!

We are delighted that you are considering joining the Saint Mary Family!  

We are a Preschool-Grade 8 Catholic school, located in beautiful Ridgefield, Connecticut.  We serve students from Ridgefield, as well as 20 neighboring towns in CT and NY.  We operate under the guidelines and policies of the Diocese of Bridgeport and follow their curriculum maps.

Work Hard, Be Kind, and Smile!  This is our motto at Saint Mary School, and it drives everything we do.  You will hear our principal remind students each day at the end of morning prayers and announcements.  You will see it depicted in each of our classrooms.  More importantly, you will see students embody the commitment to learning, the joy of practicing their faith, and the kindness that grows from a nurturing community.  We are truly a mission-driven school.

While you will learn much about our story by exploring our website, the best way to determine if Saint Mary School is right for your family is to visit our school.  We invite you to attend an Open House, where you will meet our principal and learn more about our programs and philosophy, tour the school with one of our Parent Ambassadors, meet teachers, staff, and students, and visit classes in session.  We also offer private tours throughout the school year.  Please feel free to contact us at 203.438.7288 to inquire or schedule a tour.  We look forward to meeting you!
