Your child can develop a sense of purpose and value.

The Archdiocese of St. Louis Catholic schools help students develop a heart and mind for God. Each of us has a purpose and value that extends far beyond money or power. We are on this earth for a greater purpose as is witnessed in the service learning opportunities our students participate in to replicate what Christ calls us to do. Scripture tells us how to live in this world without becoming part of it and this value is passed onto the children in our schools. Recent Catholic school graduates are 7 times more likely to attend weekly Mass.

Your child can feel secure in a dynamic future.

Our schools provide a variety of opportunities which allow students to explore their interests and pursue their talents. Whether it is academic, athletic, artistic or beyond, students’ learning experiences allow them to feed their desire to excel and spire to their calling. Since 65% of today’s grade school children will have jobs that do not yet exist, students need to learn how to think critically, problem solve, explore, and experiment. Co-curricular opportunities ensure a holistic learning experience that encourages students to give back to their communities and excel in life beyond the classroom.
