Prospective Parents


With a strong tradition of excellence founded on faith, our school community provides a Christ-centered education which promotes the development of the whole child.


A strong foundation of faith provides solace and comfort as our students grow and face common life challenges, and is an important part of creating well-rounded adults.


At St. Stanislaus Catholic School, we seek to instill a connection to those who have come before and lay the groundwork for those who will come after.  Tradition provides the stable foundation upon which a strong and positive future is built.


As educators, we work to harness and strengthen students’ innate abilities to build their confidence so that they can find success in the face of any challenge – be it in school or in life. We strive to make them effective communicators.
