St. Helena School

  • It is the mission of St. Helena Catholic School to assist parents in the spiritual, academic, emotional, and physical development of their children.
  • Catholic schools are unique expressions of the Church's effort to achieve the purposes of Catholic education among the young.
  • They are the most effective means available to the Church for the education of young people.
  • As a community and an institution, the school necessarily has an independent life of its own.
  • However, a Catholic school is also a community within the wider community, contributing to the parish upon which it depends, and integrating it into its life.
  • The curriculum at St. Helena School is structured according to recommendations made by the Archdiocesan curriculum committees.
  • However, in addition to meeting the recommendations of the Archdiocese, the curriculum also reflects the St. Helena faculty, children and parents.
