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.
