Ninety-seven percent of our graduates are accepted to Catholic high schools in the area. We have a full-time Department of Health nurse on staff.
We are proud of our commitment to partner with families in the education of each child. This strong bond helps foster a true family-centered atmosphere. We are proud to boast of our strong faculty, many of whom have been here more than 25 years and who provide a constant, positive presence in the children’s lives.
