St. Albert The Great School

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.
