While the world has changed since St. Mary Catholic School was founded in 1916, our core Catholic values remain constant. We  believe that every generation deserves a place where these values are embodied in every aspect of school life. The strong faith, academic, and service traditions of St. Mary Catholic School have touched thousands and continue to influence today’s students. We prepare our students for college, career, and heaven. Be a part of the future of St. Mary through our Legacy Fund. 

Established with the goal of securing the long-term financial future of St. Mary Catholic School in Royal Oak, Michigan, this fund ensures that our mission can be carried on for generations. 


Our permanent endowment fund is invested in accordance with the social teachings of the Catholic Church at the Catholic Foundation of Michigan. It will provide perpetual annual distributions that will support our school long into the future. The Foundation operates independently as a public charity, distinct from the Archdiocese of Detroit, ensuring the protection of all invested funds.
