OUR MISSION

MISSION STATEMENT

 

St. Vincent de Paul Regional School is a faith-filled, family-centered, diverse community. True to our Catholic tradition, children learn to serve others.  Our rigorous academics prepare our students to become effective leaders in an ever-changing global society.

SERVICE OUTREACH

At St. Vincent de Paul Regional School, serving others is integrated into our students' every day life. Food Pantry collections, donations to various shelters in our community, our annual Seniors Thanksgiving Dinner hosted by seventh grade students, and our PB&J Club are some of our school's conscientious efforts to serve others.

FAITH DEVELOPMENT

St. Vincent de Paul Regional School students learn in an atmosphere where education of the whole child is fundamental; an education developing minds, hearts, and souls with a curriculum enhanced through the integration of Catholic faith values.  We believe this is possible through the support of our school families, parishioners, and a dedicated faculty and staff committed to preparing students to lead lives of meaning and purpose.

Our History

In 1961, St. Vincent de Paul Regional School opened it's doors, under the direction of Monsignor Charles Beausang and the Sisters of St. Joseph's Chestnut Hill.   There were only three grades, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, and 74 students were enrolled.  In 1963, they added 4th grade; in 1965, they added 5th grade; and in 1966, they added 6th grade.  By 1980, they had added 7th and 8th grades, and enrollment peaked to 249 students.  In September, 1994, the school opened its new addition with new administrative offices, a Kindergarten class, and the multi-purpose room with kitchen!
