St. Monica is a parish school.
In union with parents as the primary educators and the Archdiocese of Seattle, we promote the internalization of the Good News of Jesus Christ as is expressed in our Catholic faith.
The Mission of St. Monica Parish School is to cultivate critical thinking and creativity skills, while instilling moral values in a Christ-centered environment where academic excellence and servant leadership skills are modeled and embraced. We foster a Catholic environment providing for the growth of the whole child by focusing on spiritual, academic, physical, and moral development.
We motivate and encourage our children to reach their highest potential by offering a challenging curriculum and a supportive environment designed to empower them with knowledge and self-discipline.
We invite our children to live a life modeled on the gospel values by encouraging a life of prayer, sacraments, and service to one another and the larger community.
We provide opportunities for our children to be leaders in our school and community, instilling in them the awareness that they can make a difference in our world.
