St. Edward School

The mission of St. Edward Parish School is to provide a Catholic education with Christian values rooted in a tradition of academic excellence for the children of the Jeffersontown area from Kindergarten through grade eight.
Our goals are to build a community of faith among students, teachers, and parents, thus enabling students to develop a sense of self-worth and recognize their talents and abilities as unique children of God; to provide a nurturing environment in which doctrine and basic Christian values can be taught in a unique, challenging, and diversified program in order to meet the demands of the present and future with confidence; and to encourage students to be responsible members of the global community by involvement in projects to serve others and themselves.
