Mission The Mount is a faith community, serving our students and their families with mercy, compassion, and an exceptional Christ-centered Catholic education.
Mount St. Mary has a unique identity. As a Mercy school, we embrace the values of the Sisters of Mercy who founded the school in 1903 and who remain co-sponsors with the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City.
This identity gives our distinctive curriculum an emphasis on service and action. As part of a Mount education, students extend Mercy Values in a concrete way, participating with their classmates in service both globally and locally.
The Mount's Religious Studies curriculum gives every student an opportunity to be placed as a volunteer in the community.Our unique block schedule allows students to leave campus during their Christian Service class period to serve at their assigned location.
In addition to the Christian Service class, students at all grade levels participate in Service Days each semester, leaving campus to commit a day of work to meet needs around the community.
The Mount also encourages students to address needs they discover independently. Many clubs and athletic teams at the Mount organize their own service projects. Some student body opportunities for activism and service have begun when students took the initiative, proposing their own responses to moral questions they observe and seeking their classmates' support as they do so.
This year alone, Mount students have packed food boxes at the Feed the Children warehouse in downtown Oklahoma City, partnered with the local neighborhood organization to make improvements in the community we share, tutored their classmates, ventured into political activism during Rose Day at the state capitol, successfully invited community leaders to speak at our school and much more.
The spirit of mercy and service extends to the classroom as well. Our school proudly displays the Catholic Social Teachings and Mercy Values in each classroom, and students and faculty in all subjects intentionally consider the implications these values have for their studies and for their lives.
