A Catholic education is a challenging education. High standards, strong motivation, effective discipline and an atmosphere of caring all combine to foster excellence and a high quality of student performance.

Success in the Elementary Grades

Beginning in Kindergarten we prepare students by helping them form a solid, developmentally appropriate foundation in the areas of reading, writing, math, and language arts. These skills are expanded upon from grade-to-grade preparing our Elementary Grade students to succeed in Middle School.
