St. Helen Catholic Elementary School

St. Helen Catholic School is a small, private, Catholic elementary school serving the South Gate community.
Our goal is to provide a safe, Christ-centered environment where students are given the opportunity to develop to their fullest potential.
We believe that Catholic education focuses on the development of the whole person-religiously, psychologically, intellectually, culturally and physically.
We believe it is equally important for a child to learn and acquire life-values, and at St.
Helen Catholic School, our students are encouraged to do both.
Here, children are able to strengthen their responses of faith, love, and service.
