Catholic education makes a vital impact on a child's development. Here are St. Louis School's top five reasons why you should choose a Catholic school and community for your family. 

  1. Strong moral values: Your child’s teachers serve as moral role models, and your child’s education at school is an extension of what they are being taught at home. 
  2. Solid religious foundation: Daily exposure to the Catholic faith is important to developing a strong foundation for children. 
  3. Devoted community: St. Louis School is part of a larger parish and school community, which welcomes you and your family. Opportunities for worship, fellowship, friendship, and service are readily available for everyone.
  4. High-quality education: According to The National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA), Catholic school graduates consistently outperform public and other private schools by as much as 20 percentage points in standardized testing. 
  5. Committed parents: Parents are a child’s first teachers. At Catholic schools, parents take an active role in their children’s education. The school supports families and works with them for the benefit of children.
