As Catholic educators, we strive always to educate the mind, heart and spirit in the ways of Christ and to work within the context of the parent, child, and educator to do what is best for our students. Our school provides a challenging academic curriculum with particular emphasis on the integration of academic subject areas. Our curriculum goes beyond the required state curriculum objectives, providing our students with life lessons about social skills, appropriate decision-making strategies and living as Disciples of Christ. Our academic program is supplemented with a strong focus on organization and study skills.
Our goal for the children at St. Laurence is that they become healthy, well-rounded children who can be productive members of society. The mission of St. Laurence Catholic School is to promote educational excellence, personal responsibility, and balanced growth; and thereby to help its students discover and develop their talents and achieve their best potentials. The ideas embedded in this mission statement drive our educational programming, the hiring of faculty and staff, the recruitment of students, the determination of the annual operating budget, strategic planning—indeed, the values set forth in our mission statement provide the foundation for all key decisions at the school.
Our students learn from an experienced, dedicated and enormously talented faculty and staff, who challenge, inspire, encourage and nurture. The generosity of so many in our school community has provided facilities that are beautiful, spacious, and functional.
Thank you again for your interest in St. Laurence Catholic School. Enjoy your visit to our website.
