About St. Mary School

St. Mary School located in Burlington, Wisconsin, has a rich tradition of excellence over its 155 years of providing a Catholic education for students in grades kindergarten through eighth grade.

Accredited by the Archdiocese of Milwaukee and the Wisconsin non-public school association, our teachers are licensed by the State of Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.

Our academic program includes the core subjects (mathematics, English, reading and language arts, science, social studies, and religion). Special area subjects taught in every grade level (K-8) are art, music, physical education, technology/computer education, Spanish, library science, and instrumental music (grades 5-8). An algebra course is offered through a partnership with Catholic Central High School located on our campus. Interscholastic sports include basketball, volleyball and track for grades 5-8.

All classrooms have air conditioning. The hot lunch program is recognized as one of the best in the area. All students wear uniforms. Bus transportation is available within the Burlington School District. Families can also contract bus service provided by Catholic Central High School for a fee.

Students attend classes in our technology lab housing 30 computers. Each student in grades 5-8 is one on one with an assigned Chromebook. We have chromebook carts which can turn any classroom into a minilab.  Our 6th, 7th and 8th graders are instructed in the Catholic Central computer lab by their technology teacher.

Tuition currently is $3,350 for the 2018-2019 school year. In 2019-2020 tuition will be $3,384 for Burlington Catholic School. Financial assistance is available through the Rewald Scholarship Trust Fund. An annual application for this scholarship is offered.
