The administration and faculty of St. Mary of the Lakes School firmly believe that our primary responsibility to our students is to create an atmosphere where the integration of faith and a life centered in Jesus Christ is possible through the teaching of Gospel values. We believe that Catholic Schools strive for this distinctive Christian environment where students grow spiritually, educationally and emotionally. We commit ourselves to the total development of our students. We believe that Catholic Schools provide the fullest and best opportunity for children to experience the threefold purpose of Christian education: Message, Community and Service. We believe that parents/guardians are the first to communicate the faith and to educate their children. It is only with their support and encouragement that the efforts of the school can be brought to fruition in the lives of their children.
The school has been serving children from Medford, Tabernacle, Shamong, Southampton and other surrounding towns since 1954.
Located on a spacious campus, St. Mary of the Lakes School is conveniently located on Rt 70 near the heart of Medford, New Jersey with easy access to the surrounding towns.
