Why Do Parents Choose Catholic School For Their Children?

While everyone has their own reasons, a number of significant themes are identified when you speak to parents about why they selected a Catholic elementary school for their children:

1 Catholic elementary school offers an education that combines Catholic faith and teachings with academic excellence.

2 We provide a safe and welcoming environment for all.

3 We partner with parents in the education and faith formation of their children.

4 We teach children respect of self and of others.

5 We instill in students the value of service to others.

7 We emphasize moral development and self-discipline.

8 We prepare students to be productive citizens and future leaders.

9 We provide a balanced curriculum that integrates faith, culture and life.

10 We cultivate a faculty and staff of people who are dedicated, caring and effective.

11 We set high standards for student achievement, which helps each student succeed.

12 Virtually all of our students graduate to attend a prestigious Catholic high school and 99 percent go on to college.
