St. Mary’s High School is more than a school–it’s a family. St. Mary’s seeks to provide an environment in the Catholic tradition where students have an opportunity to pray, celebrate the sacraments, and freely seek to know, follow, and proclaim Jesus Christ. While students receive an excellent education, they also have opportunities to grow in their faith, and participate in community service, clubs, and sports.

At St. Mary's, we recognize the importance of parental involvement in our students' activities. Our parents are an energetic, vibrant part of our family who wholeheartedly support the students, faculty, and staff at St. Mary’s. All of our students benefit from our parents' time, knowledge and experience. Our students' successes are a testament to the extraordinary talent and commitment of our teachers, staff, parents, and countless others who  support Catholic schools and help St. Mary’s accomplish our mission to be an excellent Catholic high school.


When your student joins our Pirate family, so do you! Parents support St. Mary's by getting involved in our Parent Pirate Crew (PPC). The Parent Pirate Crew, our version of a PTO, meets most months on the second Tuesday of the month. The meetings begin at 6 pm in the Cove. Please check the school calendar for exact dates and times.

Below, you will find more information and links to help you, as a Pirate Parent, to jump in and be more involved in our Pirate family.

St. Mary’s tracks parent volunteer hours in recognition of the importance of parent involvement in our school community. Families are expected to volunteer a minimum of 30 hours each school year (June 1-May 31) in activities that directly support St. Mary's High School.

NOTE: Parents may opt out of volunteering by paying a $450 annual fee at the time of enrollment or re-enrollment.


We use the Mobile Serve app to track parent hours. You can set up an individual account for each parent or you can set up one account for both parents to enter volunteer hours.

  2. Use Parent Code AD5EAE to create a new SMHS account.
