Elementary School Information
Why Catholic education?
An elementary education at a Catholic school engages children at an important formative time in their lives. They are learning information, but it is much more than that. They are learning about themselves, about their place and purpose in the world, and about their obligations to others. Catholic school stands out as a place that addresses all of the relevant aspects of a young person’s life. A Catholic school’s broad charter allows us to ‘educate the whole person’, in mind, in body and in spirit. It is a difference that creates an advantage for their entire life.
