Here at Immaculate Heart of Mary School, we strive to keep tuition as low as possible without sacrificing the quality of education our students receive. We also aim to allow for any child to have access to an education that feeds both mind and soul. However, we still have families that cannot afford the tuition. Many of our students come from large families with limited budgets.

Our goal is not to turn any child away because of finances in the 2017-2018 school year. We need your help. If we reach our goal of $20,000, we will offer fourteen full or partial scholarships to families in need in the next calendar school year.

We know that this is a lofty goal, but with your help we can do it.

You can help us in two ways:

First, please join us in our Novena to St. Joseph!  Your prayers mean the...

Oliver won 2nd place in the district in the local VFW's Patriots Pen essay writing contest. Oliver wrote on the theme "The America I Believe In." His amazing insight and knowledge was incredible for a sixth grade student. Job well done, Oliver!

America should be believed in! But what do I mean by “believed”? Why should this beautiful country be believed in? And what does believing in my country mean for me as ten-year-old?

Well, to believe in your country means to love your country and people to the utmost because they are yours. This is patriotism. Take Claus von Stauffenberg, one of the courageous German leaders in Operation Valkyrie. A true patriot, Stauffenberg sensed the danger the Nazi government was putting his homeland in and tried to stop it. Unfortunately, Operation Valkyrie faile...

Gabriela Bosonetto participated and earned 1st place in the district and 4th in the state in the Voice of Democracy writing contest. The 2016-2017 theme was My Responsibility to America. You can read her essay below, but you can also enjoy the audio of her essay on the main site. Great job, Gabriela!

For more information on the contest please visit the VFW's Youth Scholarship website

What is my responsibility to America? We as a generation and as a people have many responsibilities to our country, such as supporting it, being loyal to it, and participating in the democracy that runs it. But although all of these things are very important, there is one responsibility that is largely ignored and overlooked by the general populace. That responsibility is gratitude. Gra...

Please provide a background of your academic experience (high school, college).

I went to Holy Cross High School in Waterbury, Connecticut, graduating with the class of ’11.  In high school I studied a broad spectrum of subjects, from chemistry and human anatomy to creative writing and film.  During these years my career goals changed more times than I can now remember.  What I do remember most of all was discovering what the liberal arts were.  I left high school with no clearly defined plans for my future beyond the resolution to study the liberal arts at a faithful Catholic college.

I cannot speak highly enough of Thomas More College of Liberal Arts.  It gave me everything I had wanted in a Catholic liberal arts college, as well as many things that I never would have expect...

To the Union Leader Editor,


This is an open letter of our sincerest thanks to the Sisters at the Immaculate Heart of Mary School (grades K-12) located at the campus of the St. Benedict Center in Richmond, NH.  We cannot begin to express how warmly the teaching staff and students have welcomed us since we transferred our fifth grade son to the school at the beginning of the year.    


If you are looking to educate your children in the Catholic faith while also giving them an outstanding educational foundation, you cannot do better than at the Immaculate Heart of Mary School.  The teaching standards are very high and the exceptional teaching staff provides a superior standard of support and encouragement to the students.  We are most grateful that we found this jewel of a schoo...

      When I graduated starry-eyed from college back in the late Middle Ages (1960), little did I know that I would spend much of my life in Catholic education. I was more excited about the prospect of my upcoming engagement and marriage than an actual “career.” (How pre-historic of me!) Careers for ladies back then primarily meant being a wife and mother, and I was good with that, although my love for learning and books never waned. And, still today, it has not. Fifty-five plus years later, the marriage is still there, although these days it is “different” because my mate now has Alzheimer’s.

Looking back on my many happy years as a Catholic educator, I would no more trade them for a fancy high-powered job than I would my husband with all of his new challenges.

     What make...

What kind of  background and life experiences have you drawn on in teaching here at IHM school?

My high school aspiration was to be a physics teacher. After graduating from Saint Michel's College with a teaching degree I was appointed head teacher of a small private school while working towards my master's degree. I moved to Massachusetts when I got married and was lucky enough to be vice president of 2 small computer companies and finally the director of computing. I was responsible for all the computers in the entire town, but my favorite task was training staff in the various departments.

I left the workforce in 1996 to homeschool my children only to reenter when they had gone off to college. The Winchester School District needed tutors, and I spent three years there tutoring special n...

A Christian Mother’s Care of Her Child after the Period of School-Life.

The periods of childhood and school-life are soon past, and then there begins a period of life which is, indeed, fraught with dangers for your son and your daughter. It is the period of transition in which the life-course of your child is definitely settled, its character firmly fixed, and its vocation decided. It is the period which decides the weal or woe of your child’s whole future, both temporal and eternal. During this period the battle between Christ and Satan, between the Church and the World, rages more than ever for the possession of the heart of your growing boy and girl. In this period your child experiences new and strange sensations; and novel ideas, inclinations and desires present themselves; they promis...

 This newsletter is dedicated to all of those who in one way or another support our Immaculate Heart of Mary School. It is quite obvious to me that without all of your help we could not persevere through the test of time.

I sat up one dark and cold morning trying to come up with an adequate description of the importance of the integral role you play at IHM. It then hit me; I will use the human body.

Work with me, I am a science guy after all.

Above all, the Holy Spirit is the air we all breathe to keep all systems operating. Without that vital breath of life, we would have absolutely no goodness to be celebrating.

The parents can be compared to the heart of our children’s lives that on a daily basis pump goodness into each and every student.

Our benefactors can be compared to the spine holding...
