St. Wenceslaus School community is dedicated to providing a nurturing environment so that each individual's potential can be realized.

We believe that the St. Wenceslaus School community is called together by God to provide a Christian education to the children entrusted into our care.
Children are offered the opportunity to encounter God in their parents, pastor, school staff, fellow students, and parishioners, as well as in their faith, prayer, and worship experiences.
We believe that a nurturing community is comprised of responsible individuals who share respect and concern for themselves and all others.
We recognize that our strength as a community lies in our God-given individual differences.
We value and celebrate our diversity of abilities and talents, learning styles, and cultures that influence our community.
