St Mary's School

St. Mary’s School is the only Catholic Grade School in Woodford County. We have educated children living in the Metamora, Germantown Hills, Washburn, Eureka, and Roanoke areas for over 135 years. This is a tradition we are very proud of and one that we continue to build on as a faith community and family.

Greater Peoria Chess Foundation

is the driving force behind Peoria Chess. The Foundation provides tournaments and activities and the Foundation supplies the fiscal muscle to promote chess. Our youth chess programs involve over 100 youths of various ages and has included many individual and team state champions. The GPCF is proud to have partnered with the St.Mary's School to present this playing opportunity to area students.
