St. Bonaventure School is a Christ-centered community that fosters Christ's Gospel message of peace, love, service to others, and fellowship.
We strive to cultivate and maximize each child's spiritual, academic, social, and physical potential.
We believe that it is our Christian duty to assist the parents in their responsibility to develop each child's faith, we are charged to educate each child to his or her fullest potential, we are called to teach Catholic faith and values through example and through the joyful celebration of the liturgy, and we are motivated by the Word of Scripture to prepare each child for the Kingdom of God. STREAN Certified by FCC
