Education at Saint Margaret Mary
Vacation Bible School 2013 information is now available. Visit the Vacation Bible School page for more details.
Education is an important part of our parish. Along with our Pre-K through 8th school and Marian Central Catholic High School, we have Religious Education for children Pre-K-5, Faith Groups for 6-8, and Youth Ministry for Junior High & High School students.
Saint Margaret Mary School (Pre-K through 8)
Are you in search of a "Values-based Education" for your child? One that teaches your children not the three, but the FOUR Rs... Reading, WRiting, ARithmetic and Righteousness? An education that will put your child a step ahead on a shining path to High School, College and Success on both Societal and Spiritual levels? Saint Margaret Mary School is exactly what you are looking for!
Marian Central Catholic High School
Marian Central Catholic High School is a college preparatory Catholic school. Marian shares with the parents and parishes of the McHenry Deanery in the teaching mission of the Church. Our school provides students with an education infused with Catholic Christian values designed to promote religious, spiritual, intellectual, physical, social, and emotional development.
Elementary RE (Pre-K through 5)
Catholic families who choose to send their children to one or our community public schools must also choose religious education for their children. Parish families are invited and encouraged to enroll their children in our parish Religious Education (RE) Program (formerly known as Catechism class or CCD).
Junior High Faith Groups (6 through 8)
Faith Groups is the Junior High Religious Education Program for our 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students. Not only does it have a different name, it's a totally different Religious Education program. Faith Groups was created to allow youth to discover their faith in hands on activities and open discussion. Each grade level has an individual curriculum that builds on previous years in RE.
Sacramental Preparation is provided through our education programs. Elementary Religious Education prepares children in 2nd grade for their First Confession and First Communion. Preparation for Confirmation is provided by our Youth Ministry to students in the 9th grade.
