Stella Maris Academy elementary students begin to understand their relationship with God and their responsibility to contribute their gifts toward improving their community. Students participate in daily prayer, service projects, a rigorous daily curriculum and a variety of weekly lessons focused on engaging students to actively participate in a faith-based community.
The partnership between school and parents is essential. Our goal is to establish a foundation for a successful future in terms of who each student is and how each will leave to influence the world.
In elementary school, students learn more about God’s immense love through Mass, daily religion lessons and faith formation curriculum integrated into their classroom experiences. Our formative experiences include:
Weekly classroom visits from priests
Sacramental preparation for First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion in 2nd grade
Opportunities for the Sacrament of Reconciliation
Celebrations for All Saints Day and Catholic Schools Week
Special devotions for Advent, Lent, Easter and Marian (months of October & May)
Opportunities to learn about the global Church with pen pals in Ghana and Kenya
