The St. Mary’s Academy Foundation is an independent 501(c) 3 organization established in 1981 to support St. Mary’s Academy financially and to increase access to Catholic education. St. Mary’s Academy Foundation operates independently from St. Peter Catholic Church in The Dalles and from the Diocese of Baker. Your donations to St. Mary’s Academy Foundation are tax-deductible. Our federal tax ID number is 93-0806812.

For over 150 years St. Mary’s has been blessed with a generous community of alumni, parents and friends who have invested in our mission. Our mission is to provide students with a strong education within the Catholic tradition, nurturing the potential of each student, while teaching respect and responsibility for all God’s creation. Join us and be a part of our tradition.
