St. Didacus School

The faculty of St. Didacus School views itself as Catholic educators.
In partnership with the parents, we prepare our students to become full and active members of the Catholic Church, to serve others and to make a difference in the world.
Recognizing Christ as the foundation of the whole educational process, we uphold the norms of the gospel as our educational norms.
All of us at St. Didacus desire to make this a true community of faith which is living, conscious, and active.
Cognizant of the treasury of our God-given talents, accepting one another's strengths and weaknesses, we strive to provide a climate conducive to the total formation of the child with respect to his/her ultimate goal as a Catholic.
