  • St. Cecilia School is a Pre K-3 through Grade Eight Roman Catholic Elementary School.
  • It has been in existence since 1958 in the Diocese of Paterson, under the educational leadership of the Sisters of Christian Charity.
  • St. Cecilia School expresses faith experience to its students through the teachings of Jesus Christ who taught with authority, but in a spirit of peace, love, and joy.
  • This educational process provides necessary academic knowledge and skills enabling each student to develop as an individual who is responsible and accountable for his/her actions.
  • The school strives to make the students conscious of the need for social justice, enabling them to grow in Christian self-awareness.
  • As the student grows in Christian self-awareness, the school broadens that concept to include peer relationships and the community.
  • A child's intellectual development is promoted by various sequential experiences as well as an inner self-discipline which creates an atmosphere conducive to learning.
  • In the primary grades, much is learned through the use of manipulatives, actual concrete experiences, and reinforcement through educational technology.
  • As a child advances, greater emphasis is placed on subject content.
  • In the upper grades, the learning accentuates the logical and realistic approach to problem solving, critical thinking and decision-making skills.
