Choose everything.

Message from the Bishop

When you decide where to send your children to school, you want to have it all. And when you choose a Catholic school, you can. You can send your child to a school that has a superior academic program and also shares your faith, morals, and values. You can make sure your child receives individual attention and spiritual instruction.

At a Catholic school, children receive an education and an experience that prepares them to be everything God made them to be—academically, socially, and spiritually. Our students receive individual attention in a nurturing, faith-filled environment, and the results are obvious. Our student achievement scores exceed the national average in every grade level and every area we serve. Our students also receive a spiritual education. We invest in the character, morals and beliefs of each child, and our faith is integrated into every aspect of the school.

When you choose a Catholic school, you put your child in a place where they can excel academically and grow spiritually. You choose dedicated teachers and a nurturing environment.

When you choose a Catholic school for your child, you choose everything.
