Immaculate Heart of Mary School is a Catholic school. It has, therefore a specific duty. That is the complete Catholic formation of its students. All subjects must be taught in the light of the Faith. The teaching of sound Catholic doctrine must lead to the development of a true conscience and each pupil, understanding the Faith, must come to live knowingly as a child of God.
Immaculate Heart of Mary School is located at Saint Benedict Center, in the village of Still River, part of Harvard. Students (Grades 1-12) are advantaged by small class sizes, so teachers are able to focus more attention on individual students. The school building offers a science lab, computer lab, library and classrooms. In addition, we are presently constructing a 15,000 sq ft. gymnasium/auditorium.
