Remsen St. Mary’s Schools, Grades Preschool-12

Remsen St. Mary’s Schools are fully accredited and the schools offer a solid academic education in a Catholic/Christian atmosphere beginning with Preschool and continuing through grade twelve. 

St. Mary’s Schools provides for education in two educational centers: the Little Hawks Preschool and early childhood grades TK, kindergarten, and first grade are housed at St. Mary’s Grade School center in Remsen with the second through fourth grades; and grades five through twelve are educated at St. Mary’s Middle School and High School.  

Every day begins with prayer, and every class begins with prayers of petition and guidance. A portion of every day is set aside to learn about our Catholic faith and practices. Student Masses encourage youth to be active participants in their parish by being a Mass server, lectoring, and acting as greeters for the liturgy. At St. Mary’s, students are given opportunities to serve others through many outreach programs for less fortunate fellow human beings. Life from conception to natural death is ingrained in our teachings and practices as St. Mary’s is “passionately prolife.”   

For parents living out of the Remsen-Union district, the Iowa legislature has set aside a special fund to reimburse parents for transporting their children out of their district to a private school. We encourage carpooling!
