Dear Future Cardinal Families,
Thank you so much for considering our school for your family. We are a PK3-8th grade campus and have approximately 600 students. The mission of St. Matthew Catholic School is to educate a strong, faith-centered community through a commitment to the spiritual, moral, intellectual, social, and physical development of each child.
The academics at St. Matthew Catholic School reach beyond the subjects we teach. We measure our academic strength by the environment that we provide to our students, the passion with which our instructors teach, and the commitment to preparing our students for their future. We encourage our students to strive for excellence in all areas of their scholastic life so that they will be well-rounded and successful. We provide the highest quality education for our children through our exemplary faculty, a rigorous academic curriculum, and the use of advanced technology in the classroom.
At St. Matthew Catholic School, we love cheering on our Cardinals. Athletics is not only a way for our students to excel in the lessons of teamwork and integrity, but it also provides an opportunity for the entire St. Matthew community to join together as we support our student athletes in the development of Christian character through their participation in sports. We also offer many different types of programs such as Cheer, Dance, Chess Club, and STEM. We strive to offer different opportunities for our students. We understand the importance of creating an environment that supports their different interests.
If you have any enrollment questions or would like to schedule a tour, please contact our Enrollment Director, Breanne Pardo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
