We believe that every child deserves a quality, Christ-centered education where each student is taught respect and Catholic-Christian responsibility while being given a quality education for success in this ever-changing world.
We seek to assist in the spiritual, academic, social, and physical development of each student through a program and environment that is marked by Christian values.

School Reviews

My child attends St. Casimir. The academics are pretty demanding and challenging. They have a positive school environment and the staff is serious and care about the children. They know each child by name for the most part. My only complaint is that they require parents to pay for everything, (excessive for parents in this economy and single parents like myself). It gets really hard sometimes (most times) and its a major sacrifice. I feel like the Archdiocese need to consider giving discounts to single parents and not just parishoners of the church. Many of them go for the discount and not to worship. Trust me I''ve had conversations.... Overall a good school! :-)
