In 1994, St. Mary-Basha Catholic School was selected to receive the prestigious “Blue Ribbon School” Award by the U.S. Department of Education. The school is also accredited by the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement.
St. Mary-Basha Catholic School is dedicated to preparing the student for a life that will positively impact the community through principles rooted in the Gospel and in the teachings of the Catholic Church.
St. Mary-Basha Catholic School is dedicated to the education of the whole child as a Catholic and a citizen. With the mutual cooperation of the home, school, Church and community, we provide an atmosphere in which each student is given the opportunity to develop his/her unique gifts in order to build a life based on the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
