Home & School Association
The Home & School Association binds parents, students, and teachers more closely in a formal association. Parents are encouraged to attend the pre-announced, scheduled meetings during the year. For Home and School Information click HERE.
The mission of our school is to work with the parents in order to educate the students. There are numerous areas and activities where parents may volunteer to help the school. Parent volunteering opportunities exist both during the school day and outside of school hours. It is hoped that each family can find some area or activity to meet this need.
With our longstanding commitment in mind, all parishes and Archdiocesan Catholic schools use VIRTUS, a compliance management system that allows all parishes and schools to facilitate compliance with Archdiocesan child protection requirements for all volunteers who work with minors, employees, and clergy. For VIRTUS click HERE.
Uniforms are required by all students in grades K through 8th. Pre K students require gym uniforms only.
Transportation is provided by parents to and from school. Buses will be rented for group field trips.
All Archdiocesan high schools and elementary schools are accredited as a system through AdvancED. Each school is evaluated based on the National Standards and Benchmarks for Effective Catholic Elementary and Secondary Schools.
Positive School Environment
To foster a positive school environment where all students are educated in a safe and caring atmosphere, all Archdiocesan schools will follow established procedures for prevention and intervention for bullying, harassment or intimidation.
Positive Behavioral Intervention & Supports (PBIS) has been implemented in every Archdiocesan elementary and high school to enhance academic and social behavior outcomes for all students.
