ABOUT ST. HELEN SCHOOL
"We believe that it is a child's right to be educated in a nurturing and safe environment."
St. Helen Catholic School strives to educate the whole child. In doing so, a spiritual, academic, and social foundation is created. This formation, rooted in Gospel values, enables the graduate to develop as a responsible Christian citizen. We believe that it is a child's right to be educated in a nurturing and safe environment. Daily activities encourage the sense of positive self-esteem as well as the development of self-discipline. We unite for racial justice and celebrate cultural diversity. We promote active service to the school, parish, and community.
Welcome! As Principal of St. Helen Catholic School, I would like to welcome you to our community of learners.
Our school is a Catholic elementary school which serves the educational needs of children from preschool to grade eight.
As a parochial school, our mission focuses on meeting the spiritual, intellectual, physical and social growth of each child with an emphasis on instilling moral values.
St. Helen Catholic School provides for the whole child, including core academic study as well as religion, fine arts, physical education and character formation.
We realize and understand that each child is a special creation of God. We applaud individual talents and challenge children to attain their personal best.
We recognize that parents are the primary educators of their child. We encourage open communication in order to facilitate a positive family and school relationship. Parents are encouraged to take an active role in their child's school experience by becoming involved in the St. Helen community.
In order to learn how St. Helen Catholic School can meet the educational needs of your family, I encourage you to contact our school office.
