Why Choose K-8 Catholic Education?

- The positive achievements of early adolescents are recognized in culminating events and traditions, such as the fifth grade Medieval fair or the eighth grade Shakespeare play, earning participating students the admiration of the whole community, especially the younger students who anticipate their future opportunities.
