We, the St. Walter School Community, as an active ministry of St. Walter Parish, are called to be a welcoming faith community committed to spiritual and moral formation by sharing the Gospel message, actively participating in liturgy and prayer, acting on the call to Christian service, and modeling Christian beliefs and values through words and actions.
We are dedicated to providing a safe and nurturing environment of academic excellence that provides for individual needs while assisting each child in developing his or her God-given talents, gifts, and abilities.
We offer affirmation during times of change, transitions, and growth while supporting and being supported by our families as they continue to grow with their children in wisdom and faith.
We provide an environment that supports peace and tolerance in a troubled world.
