Welcome from Joe McBride, Principal

Mr. McBride, Principal

Welcome to St. Mary on the Hill Catholic School, the parish school of St. Mary on the Hill Catholic Church.  In a Christ-centered atmosphere, the mission of St. Mary on the Hill Catholic School is to teach, to learn, and to become faith-filled servants of Jesus.  By having Christ as the center of our school and in partnership with parents, we are teaching our students to become the next generation of Christian leaders. 

St. Mary's is a kindergarten through 8th grade private Catholic school serving families from Columbia and Richmond Counties in Georgia and Aiken County in South Carolina.  We welcome families of all faiths.  Accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges & Schools and the Florida Catholic Conference, St. Mary's has a demanding and rigorous curriculum that challenges our students to do their best.
