These families support the school as volunteers in many ways and demonstrate the importance of a Catholic education to their children by being so involved in the life of the school and in their children’s learning. In partnership with these parents in the education of the children is an outstanding professional staff of faculty and administrators. They are supported by a conscientious office and facilities staff who assure that the school functions smoothly and that the facilities are perfectly kept, inviting, and always attractive.
