St. Mary’s School is a tightknit and supportive faith community with the mission to communicate the teachings of our Catholic faith and the love of God, and to promote the development of the whole child to his or her full potential. Everyday our classes pray together and almost weekly we attend Mass together as a school. Arts Education has always been an important part of our school, and a tour through our hallways will show you some amazing original work. We also put on a faith-based musical production annually, with participation from every grade. St. Mary’s School is in the picturesque city of Chilliwack, located in the Fraser Valley. There are many opportunities for dining, to learn about arts and culture, and to explore the great outdoors with access to many parks and hiking trails.
