As a Catholic institution sponsored by St. Giles Parish, we participate in the Church's mission of education and evangelization by proclaiming and living the Good News of Jesus Christ with our students and families.
We are committed to a quality education that prepares our students to be people of faith, lifelong learners and to serve the broader community.
As an institution encompassing Scripture based Catholic tradition, St. Giles School exists to foster the total growth of our elementary school children.
We recognize parents as the primary educators of their children and appreciate their continual support and cooperation in fostering their children's faith and insuring their continued academic growth.
