Elementary School

Catholic schools exist to proclaim the Gospel message, to build community, and to educate. All the people in the school —administrators, teachers, clergy, parents and students — share a common life of prayer, mutual responsibility, and freedom. Life in a Catholic school is shaped by the values of the Gospel — peace, justice, community, love, patience, reconciliation, and respect.

We base our curriculum on established state and national standards in every academic area. Teachers stay up-to-date through continuing-education and in-service programs. We design each course of studies to make the most of all our resources.

Jesus Christ is the foundation for each Catholic school community. His call to teach is our inspiration; his image the model for our students. Working with parents, we prepare our students to become active members of the Catholic Church, to serve others, and to make a difference in the world.
