 Welcome to Mary Queen of Apostles School!

The philosophy and mission statement of Mary Queen Apostles School are the cornerstone of our program and environment. Through our beliefs and values we determine our polices and procedures. Through our documents, we encourage our families, our students and our staff to act and interact so that we are responsible members in a community of learners, witnesses to our faith, and reflections of Christ. 

On behalf of the faculty, staff, and students at MQA, I invite you to visit us online, contact us for information and a tour, or join us as guests for any of our events. I am sure you will find MQA to be a treasure!​

- Mrs. Cathy Collett, P​​rincipal

We provide a safe nurturing environment, promote respect for the dignity of each person, emphasize individual responsibility, and encourage service to others under the guidance of our patroness, Mary, the first and model disciple of her Son.​
