School Notes

  • We are a traditional Catholic school with a time-tested and time-proven curriculum.  We seek to prepare our students for rich Catholic lives, as well as for smooth entrance into competitive-admission area Catholic high schools.  Our students work very hard, have a significant amount of homework, learn proper manners and etiquette, participate widely in community service, and distinguish themselves in the arts, athletics, and leadership.  Our students and families enjoy many activities together and interact in an atmosphere of mutual respect.  Our staff is experienced, and our curriculumm is rigorous.
