School Notes

  • Philosohpy Statements
  • We believe each child will be provided a challenging academic Catholic education based in Catholic doctrine, academic knowledge, and life experience.
  • We believe children are instilled with responsibility, self-sufficiency, and teamwork with respect for self and others.
  • We believe service to Church and community is recognized as the duty of all, grounded deeply in a relationship with God.
  • We believe the growth and development of the whole child is accomplished in a nurturing Catholic environment and is sustained by an active partnership of devoted families, dedicated staff, and supportive parishes.
  • We believe there is a need to balance the scope of core curricular offerings with specials classes such as art, physical education, library, computers, music and hands on science.
  • We believe in maintaining financial sustainability by being fiscally responsible with our budget.
  • We believe the curriculum offered prepares children for the future and inspires a life of service to others.

School Reviews

5.0  2/17/2013
I am very pleased with the education my children are receiving in the safe, supportive environment offered by St. Monica School. The school creates a family feeling between teachers and students across grade levels. I cannot value enought the ability to teach and model and practice Christian values and Catholic teachings on a daily basis. My children are developing their faith as they become successful, confident learners.
