Mission Statement & Crest
In the spirit of the Gospel, we are committed to educate the whole person; to lead and to serve, enlightening the mind, developing the body, touching the heart, and inspiring the soul.
The merging of Akron's first two Catholic schools, St. Vincent and St. Mary, is portrayed in the official crest of St. Vincent-St. Mary High School (STVM). Featured in gold on a green background are a cross, a torch, a plow and a sword. The cross symbolizes the religious foundation of the school. The torch, symbolizing learning, differs from traditional designs in that it is held by two hands, one representing each school. The plow and sword symbolize commitment to social justice and were part of the crest of the late Bishop Clarence Issenman, who directed the formation of St. Vincent-St. Mary High School.
St. Vincent-St. Mary High School serves a diverse group of 630 students from grades nine through twelve, without regard to race, creed or ethnic origin. Out student population is culturally and socio-economically varied.
An average of 97% of St. Vincent-St. Mary graduates enroll in four-year colleges and universities across the country immediately upon graduation, with an average of one-third awarded academic and athletic scholarships.
St. Vincent-St. Mary High School is fortunate to have an independent Board of Trustees in cooperation with the President, Principal, administrative team, Campus Minister, faculty, parents, plus support organizations as well as religious direction from the Diocese of Cleveland.
