Magdalen Catholic School

The Church of the Magdalen Catholic School opened in 1951 under the direction of the Sisters of Saint Dominic who shaped a proud tradition of integrating faith and knowledge.
Magdalen Catholic School, Pre-school through Eighth grade, offers a strong curriculum serving the individual and diverse needs of our students.
Our safe, Catholic Christian environment fosters the growth of the whole person: physically, mentally, and spiritually.
It is a priority on all grade levels, to have excellent communication with parents.
We offer strong emphasis on serving the diverse needs of our students, including “Extended Learning” for children who benefit from additional learning challenges.
Another priority is that all students feel safe at school, physically and emotionally.
While we explore the latest technology, we also emphasize the perennial truths of our faith and our cultural heritage.
We believe that education is most effective when there is a balance of innovation and tradition.
