St. Mary of the Knobs Catholic School

Welcome to St. Mary of the Knobs Catholic School

Welcome!  The students, teachers, principal and staff of St. Mary of the Knobs Catholic School welcome you to our community.  We invite you to take a look at what we might offer your children and family.  What sets SMKCS apart is that we opened our doors in 2001 and we haven’t forgotten how important it is to be Christ-centered, family-oriented and have a strong commitment to educating the whole child.  What's more exciting is that we continue to grow! This year, we opened SMK Catholic Middle, an extension of our elementary school. We now offer preschool-8th grade programming. 

At SMKCS, your child will receive a top-notch education and much more.  In today’s society, we have to prepare our students to be information seekers, to think critically, to be problem solvers and to work cooperatively with others.  Their future success depends on who is behind them today!  As our Student Pledge indicates, our students have “minds inspired, hearts of Christ, hands that serve—to give back more.”   Read on to find out what more we have to offer.

Our Mission

St. Mary of the Knobs Catholic School, modeled in the image of Christ, shall nurture the spiritual, academic,
and individual potential of our students. We shall prepare children for the challenges of today and the future.
