By joining St. Aloysius you are joining not only a school or a church, but a faith community.
We are a family that comforts one another in hardship, depends upon one another for success, and rejoices together in the many blessings God has bestowed on us.
Our students enjoy the comforts of modern technology with SmartBoard systems in each classroom, dissection microscopes and probe software in the science lab, and wireless laptops available to all classes.
Yet, we also have the personal touches of big brothers/sisters for primary students, a middle school community system, and a dedicated faculty and staff that sponsor over 25 extracurricular activities.
Beyond the traditional academics, St. Aloysius School is first and foremost a Catholic institution promoting the understanding and appreciation of our Catholic faith.
We have developed our own Catholic Handbook for Children.
Priests and deacons visit our classrooms regularly.
Saints are celebrated in the morning announcements and children attend/plan weekly masses as well as monthly prayer services.
Religion is not simply another subject in the weekly lesson plan; it pervades everything we do and everything we hope to be at St. Aloysius.
We look forward to welcoming you and your family into the St. Aloysius Catholic Community.
