St. Gerard Majella School is a place where the promise and potential of every child begins to be realized.
The basis of our philosophy is our commitment to educating the whole child while recognizing each child's individuality.
In a warm and nurturing environment, faith is strengthened, academic skills are developed, and friendships are formed.
Working in partnership with the entire parish community, we prepare students to meet future faith and academic challenges and responsibilities.
We believe that respect for self and others is the key to positive self-esteem.
We believe that the development of the whole child is best nurtured when there is positive interaction among the home, school, and community.
As a Catholic Educational Community, S.G.M. is dedicated to recognizing the unique God given gifts of each individual.
All members of this community strive to create a warm, accepting environment in which each person feels comfortable to grow as an individual and in his relationship with Christ.
Because our Christian philosophy recognizes the whole person in its educational efforts, our community aims to promote the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, social, physical, moral, and cultural development of each individual.
