St. Angela Merici Parish School

Saint Angela Merici School is a Catholic faith community that creates a Christ-centered environment.
Religion is integrated with all aspects of living and learning.
This atmosphere fosters the development of a personal relationship with God.
Students grow in the realization that faith is a way of life which should permeate all their actions and decisions.
Our goal is to impart a deep conviction in individuals to bear positive witness in the world. While parents have the primary responsibility for the Christian education of children, all members of the faith community strive to support, enhance and compliment each other.
Working together, teachers, parents, administrators, staff and clergy provide learning experiences based on the solid foundation of Christian example and service.
