Letter from School Leadership

V + J

Welcome to Immaculate Heart of Mary School!  We invite you to learn about our school and look forward to the opportunity and honor to get to know you and your family. 

As a parish school, our primary mission is to serve the families of Immaculate Heart of Mary parish as we “embody excellence in Catholic education, empowering students to lead, learn, collaborate, innovate and act with integrity.” (IHM Mission Statement). Although much has changed since our foundation in 1951, our commitment to each child in our care is steadfast, and we welcome the opportunity to serve you and your children.

As a Catholic School in the Archdiocese of Baltimore, we follow the archdiocesan curriculum as we partner with our school families to meet the needs of their children. We are dedicated to promoting academic excellence and personal growth for each of our students by focusing on educating the whole child: spiritually, academically, physically, and emotionally so that they can become the person God created them to be. 

If you are not already part of our school community, we invite you to get to know us. As a school with a 70+ year history, we have many beautiful traditions which we cherish. We are also a school looking to the future so that we can prepare our students to move ahead and make great impacts to better our world. We are proud of the rich past of IHM, dedicated to excellence in the present, and excited for the future of this amazing school community. 

May God bless you and the work He has begun in us, 

Sue Surine
