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, in partnership with parents, is to form Christian leaders who are faithful, prepared, and courageous.
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.
