Welcome to St. Mary Magdalene Catholic School!
At Saint Mary Magdalene Catholic School “We pray. We learn. We care.” This is an attitude that permeates every aspect of our students' daily experiences. Since 1999, our dynamic school community has made our campus a warm, engaging, and safe place to learn.
Prayer and our Catholic faith are an integral part of our school day. As a school community, we come together each morning and afternoon with a school-wide prayer. Additionally, the entire school celebrates Mass weekly and includes students as readers, gift bearers, and altar servers. Students also participate regularly in daily Chapel Mass and occasionally in Adoration. Our preschool-2nd graders have the opportunity to attend Catechesis of the Good Shepherd weekly. Some of our Catholic traditions include Blessing of the Animals, October’s Month of the Rosary, Advent Services, Christmas Pageant, Stations of the Cross, 8th grade Saint Wax Museum, Month of Mary & May Crowning and First Communion Mass.
The StMM staff is dedicated to providing exceptional academic instruction for all of our students. We serve Preschoolers, Elementary students and Middle Schoolers. Since StMM's founding, our faculty and staff have tailored the Diocesan curriculum to the high caliber of students that attend our school. In addition to the NC Standard Course of Study, we offer the 6 plus 1 traits of Writing and Religion in all grades, Cursive Handwriting in 3rd grade, Spanish in 4th grade, and Accelerated Middle School Math in grades 6-8. Using a diverse range of traditional and current teaching methods, we make it a top priority to teach each student as an individual.
Learning extends to our Specials and Electives as well. We offer Music, PE, Art & Media to our PK4-3rd grade students. Drama or Band is offered to 4-6th graders as well as Spanish. In addition to Spanish and PE, our 7th and 8th graders are able to choose 2 electives per year ranging from Simple Machines and Marine Biology to French and Home Economics.
Together with their spiritual and academic values, our students also proclaim their living faith through a commitment to serve in the school and community. Our upperclassmen (Grades 5-8) complete 20 hours of service each school year. Each grade participates in service projects throughout the year, such as the local Brown Bag Ministry, food drive for Catholic Parish Outreach, and pet supply drive for Wake SPCA.
We invite you to join our Monarch community where we pray, we learn and we care.
