St. Denis-St. Columba School

     Tel: (845)227-7777
Grades: K - 8 | 353 students
Saint Denis/Saint Columba School is a Catholic, co-educational, community of faith in which our future leaders strive for academic excellence, seek truth and show respect for the dignity of each person.
Saint Denis/Saint Columba’s philosophy of education is rooted in the mandate to “Teach as Jesus Taught.” To this end, we promote in the children an awareness of the presence of Christ in the world and the ability to see the magnificence of God through a body of knowledge.
We seek to prepare students to live in the world as responsible Christians who are witnesses to Christ.
Our challenge is to foster an active Christian community that strives to meet the spiritual and academic needs of each student.
Our desire to infuse Christian virtues is accomplished through the teaching of doctrine, a deep commitment to prayer life, and dedicated service to others.
We endeavor to heighten the students’ awareness of our personal and moral responsibility to not only find Christ in others, but also to demonstrate His virtues in every aspect of our daily lives.
