St. Matthew Elementary School

The St. Matthew School family is dedicated to a tradition of Christian values and academic excellence in order to prepare our students for the joys and challenges of life.
We believe that Christ is the reason for our school.
He is the unseen, but ever present, teacher in our classrooms, the model for our faculty, and the inspiration for our children and their parents.
This quality Catholic education builds the self-esteem of our students and prepares them to be future leaders in both our parish and our community.
To this end, we provide a strong Religious Education program which embodies the message Christ continues to teach us, the community Christ inspires us to form, and the services we must put into practice if we are to live the Gospel.
