St. Mary's School

Agency and Placement Location: 2 Powers St, Canton, NY 13617 (one mile from campus)

Transportation: Need Own Transportation, this means that CBL did not automatically reserve a SLU vehicle. Therefore, it is the student’s responsibility to access available resources to secure transportation. In these cases, a placement site is either considered within walking/biking distance, or is within five miles of campus. Here are some alternative transportation options to consider: use a personal car that you are an insured driver for, walk, or bike. In some cases, it is possible to reserve a university vehicle; however, a student MUST complete SLU's Driver Certification training in order to utilize this transportation.The CBL office does not endorse the idea of students carpooling in personal vehicles and should only be considered after all other options have been exhausted. Should carpooling be necessary, both the driver and any riders must complete transportation waivers

Mission: According to their website,  “St. Mary's is part of the Catholic school system in the Diocese of Ogdensburg.  The purpose of St. Mary’s School is to provide a safe and loving environment where children may have their developmental needs met.  This school is a place where children are educated: academically, physically, socially, psychologically, and most importantly spiritually.  St. Mary’s School is a contemplative environment seeking a diverse population of adults and children.  St. Mary’s welcomes a compassionate and socially active community of faith to join in opportunities to worship and apply Gospel values.”
