Since 1904, we’ve inspired inquisitive students to be thinkers, doers, explorers, builders, debaters, challengers, storytellers and dreamers.
To be goal-oriented while community minded.
To be resourceful while thoughtful.
And to flourish in faith.
The mission of St. Mary Help of Christians Catholic School is to prepare the way with a high-quality education in the caring spirit of the Beatitudes.
In our ever-changing world, it is a blessing to be a part of this nurturing and embracing community. This has been a wonderful journey for us as a family. The discipline and spiritual enlightenment we have experienced cannot be measured. Go Saints!
SMS is a true gift we wanted to pass along to our children. As an alumni, in the class of 1996, I wanted our children to create the same life-long friendships I was afforded while receiving such a quality education. SMS, then and now provides a wholesome Catholic education in a nurturing and safe environment.
My daughter graduated from St. Mary Help of Christians Catholic School in Aiken with high honors. She was a three-sport scholar athlete that brought 4 AAMSL championships to the school. The tools, skills, and spiritual leadership she learned at St. Mary’s, in the classroom, on the court/field, and in religious education has directly carried over to high school where she is still a top academic performer and a three-sport athlete. The experiences my daughter had at St. Mary’s School coupled with the Catholic faith they teach, truly helped shape her future.
