Overview

Overview

St. Vincent Ferrer Catholic School says

St. Vincent Ferrer School was constructed in the spring of 1955 and opened in September with our first six grades. The Sisters of Mercy came from Kinsale, County Cork, Ireland to staff the school and are still present today to enrich the lives of our students and staff. Our campus consists of 15 classrooms, an extensive media center, modern science lab, well-equipped music room, a state of the art computer lab and an advanced art program. We also have a full facility gymnasium as well as a stage and theatrical department. Our sports programs provide our students with various avenues to pursue their physical growth and success. St. Vincent Ferrer campus hosts private tennis courts, basketball courts, along with vast fields for various other sports activities.

Curriculum

St. Vincent Ferrer School is under the guidance and supervision of the Diocese of Palm Beach Office of Schools. As a Diocese, all schools are required to follow an established curriculum and are held accountable to said curriculum. Presently, all Palm Beach Diocesan Catholic schools follow the National Catholic Standards and Benchmarks.

Each year, the superintendent, assistance superintendent, administrators, and teachers meet to fine tune and review our curriculum and to evaluate learning tools which enhance student mastery of the standards and benchmarks. St. Vincent Ferrer School is fully involved in this review and evaluation process.

St. Vincent Ferrer School is committed to providing a strong curriculum that allows our graduates to excel academically, spiritually, and socially, in high school, college, and beyond. The curriculum has been developed and is implemented to allow our students to be creative and independent thinkers while integrating our Catholic values. The curriculum provides opportunities for students to learn and value a sense of community, national, as well as a global perspective. We are committed to the development of faith-filled, responsible, and contributing members for tomorrow.

All students in grades PK-8 take core curriculum classes consisting of English Language Arts (reading, writing, grammar, spelling, vocabulary), math, science, social studies, and religion. These core areas are extended and connected in specials classes. Students attend art, music, physical education, media, Spanish, and computer classes weekly.

Mission Statement

St. Vincent Ferrer School celebrates the uniqueness of each person as a child of God while we proclaim the Gospel message, pray together, build community, and serve others.

We encourage students to open their Hearts to God,
their Minds to Learning,
give of their Talents to Service and strive to be Stewards of the Earth.

We will provide a strong spiritual and academic foundation so that our students can become responsible members of the Church and community now and in the future.
