Beyond their vital role in the Church’s mission of providing young people with a strong formation in the faith, studies consistently have shown that Catholic elementary schools outperform their public school counterparts in student academic achievement, even when all appropriate background variables have been taken into account. And, the longer a child attends a Catholic school, the greater the impact.
This is due to many factors, including a solid core curriculum, teacher dedication, classroom discipline, and demanding academic requirements. Also, the nurturing, values-based environment of Catholic schools enhances student self-respect, respect for others, future faith life, and civic involvement.

If you are considering a change for your child(ren), now is the time. School begins on September 6th. Please give me a call!
Have a great week, and God bless!
