St. Mary's High School is a small, co-educations college-preparatory Catholic high school located in downtown Annapolis, Maryland. It is part of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Baltimore. St. Mary's is accredited by AdvancED, the Archdiocese of Baltimore and is recognized and approved by the Maryland State Department of Education.[2]

History[edit]

Campus features[edit]

The school is located in downtown Annapolis, on Duke of Gloucester Street. It is connected by hallways with St. Mary's Elementary School, and shares its grounds with St. Mary's Church as well as the Charles Carroll House. Originally, the School Sisters of Notre Dame maintained a convent on the property as well; that building has since been transformed primarily into a library and computer labs. Classrooms and hallways are based on a traditional corridor basis (A, B and C), with lockers located in each along the walls. The gymnasium is also located on campus, and is named after C. Mason "Daffy" Russell, a longtime coach at St. Mary's.

Being located in a tight, urban area, surrounded by historic properties, the school does not have athletic fields of its own on campus. Historically, the school has utilized practice facilities at Bates Middle School and Germantown Elementary School for practices, and has used various sites in the area for home games. In 2007, St. Mary's finally gained its own home field by building the St. Mary's Field at St. John Neumann Church on Bestgate Road, approximately 2 miles (3.2 km) from campus.

Organization[edit]

The school has an advisory School Board that offers recommendations to the pastor and school administrations concerning policies and fiscal responsibility.

As of 2014, the school does not have a principal. There are two vice principals.

Academics[edit]

St. Mary's offers AP and Honors classes for advanced students.
