Philosophy: "St. Scholastica School's philosophy of education is visible as our faculty and staff, in partnership with our parents, encourages our students to work to their fullest potential. If you walk through our school, you would notice that God's presence is evident within the walls of our classrooms and in the hearts of our students and teachers." Father Norbert Raszeja, Pastor.

As a Catholic parish school educating children in kindergarten through grade eight, St. Scholastica serves the needs of the community regardless of race, color, sex, nationality or ethnic origin. Because it is an extension of the Body of Christ, the Church, it prepares its students to be witnesses to their Catholic faith, spreading Christ's message in all aspects of their lives. The faculty provides the inspiration and curriculum that foster academic excellence in all areas of the students' performance. Recognizing each child's unique talents, gifts and needs, we encourage them to complement each other and the catholic community. Promoting an appreciation for the means to attain life-long learning skills, St. Scholastica provides students with an educational foundation on which they can build successful, meaningful futures. Responsible citizenship is developed through worship and service, academics and extracurricular activities. Meaningful relationships are nurtured, as respect for, and celebration of, ethnic traditions is modeled. St. Scholastic recognizes that parents are the primary educators of their children and acts as an extension of the families. Educating its students is the shared responsibility of parents and school personnel. Principal: Mrs. Gail A. Kueper

St. Scholastica School Anthem

St. Scholastica makes us proud,

we say our name, we say it loud.

They teach, they preach, they touch our lives,

we grow, we learn, we hope to thrive.

With God above and all the things around

the world that knowledge brings.

There are sports to test agility,

tests to flex our memory,

artistic creativity, life lessons teach reality.

Through school spirit we are free,

to show our love for liberty!

God Bless St. Scholastica!
