St. Albert the Great, a nationally recognized Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, draws students from twenty-three different zip codes; and yet, we maintain our close-knit community by fostering close relationships with our students and families.
We offer both Preschool (half and full day programs starting at age 3) and elementary grades, Junior Kindergarten - 8th.
As a Catholic school, we instill in our students a love of Christ, a dedication to service, and a strong desire to learn as we prepare our students academically, socially, and spiritually for high school, college and beyond.
We also have convenient on-site after school care for preschool-5th grade until 6pm during the school year, affordable bus transportation on St. Albert dedicated school buses (JK-8th), and tuition assistance opportunities.

School Notes

  • Our Preschool provides a positive, stimulating introduction to classroom education in a warm and loving learning environment. It is developmentally appropriate for our youngest learners, contains a play-based curriculum, and prepares our little Vikings for a smooth transition into Kindergarten. Students need to be fully potty trained and either age 3 by August 1st (Preschool 3's class) or age 4 by August 1st (Pre-K class).
  • Junior Kindergarten is available to children who have completed some preschool and turn age 5 by October 1st. These children have either missed the kindergarten cut-off date of August 1st, do not want to repeat Pre-K, and/or could benefit from an extra year of social and academic experience before entering kindergaren. Preschool teacher recommendation needed. This transitional class combines play and exploration from Preschool and academic development from Kindergarten.
  • In Kindergarten, each day will be filled with exciting adventures to help your child develop academically, spiritually, and socially. Our kindergarten curriculum is challenging; yet fun, and provides play activities and learning experiences to prepare them for a smooth transition into 1st grade. Students need to be age 5 by August 1st.
