Our outdoor classroom and playground are the scene of many games and new discoveries.



At St. Mary Cathedral School (K-3rd grade) and St. Lawrence Elementary (K-6th grade) our kindergarten students start the SuperKids Reading Program.

Our math program is supplemented by ALEKS and IXL which self-directs students to work at their individualized level. Students attend weekly Mass and receive theology instruction. Students may participate in the Mass as readers and gift bearers. Specials include weekly P.E. classes, music, art, digital citizenship, library, and guidance.
