ADDITIONAL COMMENTS

The oldest private school in the county, St. Mary’s Catholic School was founded by Dominican Sisters in 1896. Always rich in rigorous and classical methodologies, our school formally renewed our commitment to Catholic Classical instruction in 2018. Serving PK3-8th grades, St. Mary’s is conveniently located just outside of the Austin metroplex, but with all the beauty and quaintness of the smaller city of Taylor (a historic farming community with the best BBQ in Texas and a lovely historic downtown shopping area).
