Learning for Life

At St. Aloysius, we provide learning for life.  St. Aloysius School offers a traditional curriculum in each of the core subjects as well as religion. Our disciplined approach to instruction has resulted in St. Aloysius students consistently achieving above-grade-level scores on standardized tests. Our eighth grade graduates attend outstanding private schools.

 

Importance of Prayer

As a Catholic school, prayer is an integral part of daily life. In addition, we show our students how to live their faith, beginning with small acts of kindness as well as participating in significant community service projects. Our focus on spiritual development helps students to develop the right moral compass to guide their decisions, big and small.

 

Close-Knit Community

Our school community also sets St. Aloysius apart. Parents, teachers and staff all share in a common set of values and a steadfast commitment to the school. With a veritable army of parent volunteers, we enjoy tremendous community spirit with students and families supporting each other across grade levels.
