School Notes

  • Formed in 2012, Community of Saints was created with a mission to make Catholic education available to any family in the region regardless of ability to pay full tuition.A successful tuition assistance program has a strong impact on our community by making a high quality Catholic education financially possible for everyone in the community who wants their children to experience the academic rigor and the values of a Catholic education that will benefit them throughout their lifetime. By engaging students in a multi-cultural school environment, they learn to appreciate and value diversity and are better prepared to assume a leadership role in addressing the challenges of a diverse world community.We are committed to the highest academic standards in order to prepare our students for high school and beyond.
