St. Columbanus School is a faith community in which students, Preschool to Grade 8, are encouraged to develop their intellectual, emotional, spiritual, social and physical gifts to their fullest potential.
Students are taught Christian prinicples to guide them in making moral decisions as they live out their Christian role of service in the global community.
We, the faculty and staff of St. Columbanus School, guide our students in their spiritual, intellectual, physical and social growth.
We provide an academically demanding curriculum in a nurturing Catholic environment that encourages and aids each student to develop his/her intellect to its full potential.
Our religious purpose is to educate the whole child based on the Gospel values and to foster growth in their faith journey to become more like Christ.
We understand that discipleship is ministry of care, encouragement and love.
We seek to express our faith to those outside our school community through word and action.
