At St. Mary Orthodox Christian School, we take immense pride in our commitment to providing a top-tier educational experience for our students. Central to this commitment is our unique approach to core classes, which are exclusively taught by specialized teachers in an intimate classroom setting. This approach allows us to create a learning environment where students receive personalized, individualized instruction tailored to their specific needs and learning styles. With small class sizes, each student benefits from ample one-on-one time with their dedicated teacher, fostering a deep understanding of the subject matter.

Moreover, this setup empowers our educators to identify and address the unique academic requirements of each student. Whether a student requires acceleration to excel further or remediation to bridge any gaps in their understanding, our specialized teachers have the flexibility to provide precisely what is needed. This approach ensures that every student receives a quality, on-level curriculum that aligns with their pace of learning, ultimately promoting academic excellence and fostering a love for learning. At St. Mary OCS, our dedication to individualized instruction in core classes is a testament to our unwavering commitment to the academic success and growth of each and every student.
