Saint Henry School is a Catholic parochial elementary school.
Its philosophy is derived from the application of fundamental Catholic teaching.
The aim and content of our educational program considers not only the child's mind and body but also, and most importantly, his/her immortal soul.
To form true and honest Catholic Christians who will live in this world in such a way as to enter the happiness of heaven is surely the aim of Catholic parents who have the first and greatest responsibility for the education of their children.
Saint Henry School is committed to supporting this fundamental task of parents through a school program aimed at providing spiritual, educational, social and physical opportunities for students to grow and explore their gifts, talents and responsibilities of service to the wider community.
