St. Vincent Ferrer School is a Catholic elementary school (K-8) fully accredited by the State of Ohio.
The school offers an excellent opportunity to realize the purpose of Christian education, as well as the finest secular education.
Functioning within the autonomous educational system of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, the school is manifested in three dimensions: message, fellowship, and service.
These three dimensions give birth to four specific concerns of the school: Church and Mission, Community, Learning and Teaching, and evaluation.
The St. Vincent Ferrer faith community recognizes that Christ is the reason for our school.
We strive to create a learning environment where the dignity of each person is evidenced by the care and concern offered to them.
An academic program is provided that speaks to the needs of the individual.
We seek to develop their God-given gifts, which will ultimately lead to a life of service.

St. Vincent Ferrer is a great school with caring teachers and supporting staff. It is truly a community where everyone knows each other. The families at this school are always there to support each other as well. From my point of view; students from SVF have an advantage when entering high school and thrive academically.

Outstanding School and Community!!!! St. Vincent has built an amazing foundation with its preschool and develops with each consecutive grade level. Everyone looks out for each other and the school has a positively unique culture based on its size and resources. True academic excellence and dedication to each and every student.

We came to St. Vincent Ferrer as transplants from another school that had closed, so I was hesitant to get comfortable at a new school. I tried very hard to not fall in love with SVF but it had everything that our old school had - small class sizes, close community feel, all the programs my older son needed, an all-day pre-kindergarten for my youngest, FANTASTIC teachers and a friendly cast of parents. The school is diverse, yet we are all there for the same reason and come together to reach the same goals. Both of my boys are so happy to go to school and are making lifelong friends (I am too). In addition to being a great school, the faculty has gone above my expectations to maintain a clean and safe learning environment during the COVID-19 pandemic. They offer both in-class and virtual learning to ensure that each student is getting the learning they need and are comfortable with. And they are still finding ways to introduce "normal" activities into the day for the whole community.

ST. Vincent Ferrer School has a family atmosphere which makes teaching and learning fun for all. The staff and students interact across grade lines. Older students read and enjoy crafts with younger students. Electives give students choices of non traditional classes once a week. Our ownTV program, produced and directed by the Junior High, gives us daily reports about upcoming events and special reports add interest and knowledge in non school areas. Come and visit. Your children will be glad you did.
