St. Catherine School, an integral part of St. Catherine Parish, is a K-8 Catholic elementary school that educates students from diverse backgrounds in an environment supporting the highest standards of academic excellence. Students are challenged to grow spiritually, academically, socially and physically. We believe that parents, as primary educators of their children, together with the teachers, promote education as a life long process. We believe that parents are an integral part of the school community, showing their commitment to the school philosophy through active participation in the school and parish communities. We believe that every child has a right to be led to an awareness of God. We believe that each child has the right to live out the Gospel values of human dignity, freedom, peace, and social justice, while working toward the life God promises. We believe that the school should provide an environment in which each child cultivates a strong self-image, develops a positive attitude, recognizes his/her uniqueness, and strives toward achieving his/her full potential. We believe that each child, in the spirit of stewardship, is responsible for using his/her God-given talents, to maintain, and to preserve the world for future generations.
