Saint Ephrem Elementary School is a Roman Catholic School of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, dedicated to the religious, academic, and social education of its students. The school upholds a nondiscriminatory policy and admits qualified students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to our students. We are proud of our tradition of excellence in the education we offer our students. We are a school with a rich history of academic achievement and recognized service to the community. Mindful that each person is the dwelling place of God, we are committed to the development of the whole person. Priests, administrators, faculty members, and staff work cooperatively with parents/guardians to develop each student spiritually, academically, emotionally, physically, and socially. The true Catholic nature of our school is founded on the Good News of Jesus Christ. As a faith community, we give witness to Gospel values which are assimilated through the hearing of the Scriptures, through prayer and worship, and through acts of loving service. In all activities, we strive to nurture the God-given abilities of each student and to create an environment in which continuous learning is highly valued.
