The school and its president are working wonders to maintain and grow St Mary's academic and athletic traditions
while slowly updating buildings, grounds and technology needed to be competitive in today's education market.
Choosing an educational path, young men and their families have some pretty good choices.
St Mary's is still in the running offering a great education at a reasonable price. 
The school's aim moving forward is to have and even stronger positive influence on the south side;
educating and guiding its young men while helping to stabilize the neighborhood
setting a high example and by welcoming all to make use of its state of the art athletic facilities.
The term Renaissance was chosen because of the program's objective;
a rebirth of St Mary's and of the South Side
St Mary's Alumni is one of the school's biggest strengths.  
18% of St. Mary's Alumni contribute annually to the school.  
Compared to 5-6% for alumni from other Catholic schools, we are far and away the best!
"St. Mary's" is a great answer to the St Louis question; "Where did you go to high school?"
You don't need a meeting or a special invitation to do what you know is right.  
Please donate as you can to help the rebirth and to keep the tradition alive.
