St. Martin Of Tours Academy

Founded on September 1951, St. Martin of Tours Academy is a Catholic parish elementary school whose purpose is to provide students with moral and spiritual formation and a solid academic foundation.
Faith, culture and life are brought into harmony through a curriculum and system of education that equips students with skills for lifelong learning.
Each student is challenged to internalize values and prepare for life as a committed Christian who contributes to the needs for justice, love, and peace in the world.
With a student centered orientation, we strive toward the holistic development of each individual.
To this end, we employ a system of human growth and a learning process which insures that all students have equal opportunities to learn how to think, how to learn, and how to make responsible decisions in their own lives.
In this educational process, teachers work in close communication with parents.
