Nestled in South County, Monsignor Clarke School has a vigorous commitment to excellence and we work daily to challenge the minds and hearts of our students. Within the school’s mission statement is the exhortation “to teach students to respect all people and apply the doctrines and values of the Catholic Church in their daily lives.” Our school is grounded in a strong Catholic tradition where faculty, staff and children live out their day in a faith-filled environment.
We invite you to browse our website and to stop into school, where you too will see students at work in a happy environment!
