We are so thankful and happy to have our child at St. Lawrence. The teachers and administration are incredible. They go above and beyond to ensure a community of love, trust, growth, and compassion is created for the students and communication with parents ensures security and confidence for us parents. Principle Frey communicates regularly with families of SLCS and is always available to address the needs of the students and the school. SLCS embraces diversity which is key in a successful education and to build relationships of love rather than judgement. You can come to SLCS without worrying about "where you come from." SLCS invites all children to receive an exceptional education, so it's not about your financial status. It is about giving our children the best no matter what. We love SLCS. It is a gem in the Muncie community and we are so thankful.

This is our first year attending St Lawrence. My daughter is in kindergarten, and she loves it! We have had nothing but a great experience thus far. She can`t wait to go to school every day. The teachers and staff are very caring and compassionate and go above and beyond to make your child feel welcomed. I also love the small class sizes so each child can have more individualized attention and help. The school welcomes all families with open minds and hearts.

St. Lawrence Catholic School (SLCS) has been an excellent find for our family. The school provides several opportunities for parents to meaningfully contribute to the school`s culture. Classes are small and the curriculum challenges both of our children. Initially, we looked at SLCS for our kindergartner whose birthday is 20 days after Indiana public schools` established 5 yrs. old by September 1st kindergarten cut-off policy. Our son tested in, did well, and qualified for SLCS 5 yrs. Old by October 1st kindergarten cut-off date. After witnessing SLCS`s intimate learning environment, our 3rd grader expressed interest in attending school with her brother and we chose to allow her to attend. We are pleased to notice that she is equally as challenged as she was in the Expanded Learning Program (ELP) from her previous school.

Sending my children to St. Lawrence Catholic School was one of the best decisions we have ever made. It is truly a family atmosphere and the education is the best around. All students are included in all activities and due to the small class sizes children get to experience many extra learning activities and field trips that wouldn't be otherwise possible. All "special classes" are excellent with music and tech programs being amazing and really extra special. The education has given my children a great foundation for learning.
