Our Mission
St. Charles Catholic School strives for academic excellence within a Catholic Christian atmosphere and is dedicated to the growth of the whole child.  In partnership with parents, St. Charles Catholic School challenges students with an innovative curriculum that provides a lifetime of learning.

We believe all children are unique individuals capable of learning by actively participating in their education.  St. Charles Catholic School, as a primary mission of the parish community, educates in an environment of faith that encourages security and confidence in their abilities.  The partnership between parents and teachers motivates and encourages children to accept responsibility for their growth and development.  It is enhanced and supported by PTO, School Advisory Council, and the parish community.  This total partnership helps students form a solid foundation of basic skills, creativity, and faith development.

Because children learn at different rates, curriculum is developmentally appropriate, sequential and progressive, as well as flexible, appealing, and fully integrated.  In order to provide students with sound Christian values and education, we, as parents and teachers, strive to ensure development of the whole child for a lifetime of learning.  St. Charles Catholic School accepts all students regardless of faith, race, and ethnicity.  The faculty and staff reflect, in their teaching and actions, the constant reminder that children are first in our community.
