School Notes

  • Butler Catholic School is a vibrant and faith-filled learning community dedicated to helping students grow academically, spiritually, emotionally, and physically.  Founded by the merging of St. Paul`s, St. Michael`s and St. Peter`s schools in 1969, and later joined by St. Andrew and St. Fidelis parishes, Butler Catholic is a school with an enrollment of approximately 275 students from pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. Butler Catholic serves the area of seven school districts:  Butler, South Butler, Mars, Moniteau, Karns City, Seneca Valley and Slippery Rock.We strive to educate the whole child. That is, we aim to carefully guide students in their intellectual, physical, social, spiritual, and service pursuits.  Our mission is to proclaim the message of Jesus Christ, and the formation of responsible, faithful, servant-leaders.Enrollment is open to children from all faith traditions, Catholic and non-Catholic alike. Butler Catholic School admits qualified students of any race, color, gender, ethnicity, national origin, or disability (if reasonable accommodations can be assumed by the school).
