St Mel School

  • Our mission at St. Mel's School is to promote and enhance each individual's wholeness in an academic environment with Christ as our primary model.
  • Catholic teachings and values, initiated in the home are reinforced by our examples of kindness, respect, and religious beliefs as a faculty and staff and are made an integral part of the students' everyday life in diverse communities.
  • We hope to foster in each child a sense of self-esteem by providing a quality Catholic education.
  • This is accomplished by assisting the student to discover and use the tools to develop his/her full potential spiritually, intellectually, physically, emotionally and socially.
  • This entails monitoring individual and group progress and communication with faculty, administration and parents to assure continued progress.
  • Working together, school, parents and children will be mutually supportive and responsible for the growth of all.
