St. Laurence School is dedicated to students.
The administration, faculty, curriculum, and programs are all focused on stimulating each student's full potential.
We believe that teaching the truths of our Catholic faith, as well as instilling Christian values, are primary in the education of our children.
Parents are the primary educators of their children, with the school assisting the parents in their role as educators.
