Philosophy

Students enter St. Vincent de Paul Elementary School as unique children of God with individual talents and backgrounds. In partnership with parents, as the primary educators of their children, the faculty and staff are committed to guiding students in reaching their full academic potential through a Catholic curriculum emphasizing spiritual, intellectual, physical, creative and social development. Through this student-centered learning we encourage students to develop a positive self-image and strengthen their Christian values within the Catholic community.
