St. Edward School

St. Edward School exists to educate students in an environment that blends learning with faith formation.
Along with the families and the Catholic Community, we strive to provide a strong academic curriculum, promote Catholic values, and encourage stewardship.
We anticipate a mature, knowledgeable person who is spiritual, respectful, and uses her God given talents toward a global citizenship.
Catholic education is the development of the intellectual, spiritual, moral, emotional and physical growth of the children.
A Catholic school staff in cooperation with the pastor and parents provide the foundation for proclaiming the Gospel message, celebrating the liturgy, developing a faith-filled community and living the Good News of Jesus through ministry and service to others.
We believe that a peaceful and happy environment promotes educational achievement.
Students are motivated in their individual learning with positive reinforcement and discipline.
We believe that teaching methods stimulate students to develop their God-given abilities, self-esteem and promote the understanding of Christian justice in the community and world.
