St Alexander School

Tel: (708)448-0408
Grades: PK-8 | 371 students
St. Alexander School is a Catholic Elementary school that rests on a 12 acre site with St. Alexander Parish, just North of 127th and Harlem Avenue.
It was founded with the Parish in June of 1959 with the appointment of Father Hanton by Archbishop Albert Cardinal Meyer.
Father Hanton selected the name "St. Alexander" in honor of the third century pope and his own deceased father and brother who bore the same name.
Our school has continued to provide an excellent academic, religious and moral foundation for our children.
We strive to offer a curriculum meeting the needs of the whole child -- spiritually, academically, socially and physically -- and to work toward each student's realization of his/her potential in these areas.
In cooperation with parents, the school fosters an atmosphere of love, respect and service where the message of Christ is taught and lived and community worship is an integral part of the religious education program.
Through their Catholic education, the students learn responsibility and an appreciation of their family, school, parish, community and world.
This is the mission of St. Alexander School.
