Why St. Clare

“When it was time for our oldest son to start school, we explored both public and Catholic education. When we toured St. Clare Catholic School, we noticed and felt something different. As the principal gave us a tour of the school, we saw students attending Mass, parents volunteering, happy and excited children, and warm and friendly teachers and staff…it felt more like a family.”
— Chris and Marci Lowery, St. Clare Parents

St. Clare Catholic School is a community of students, faculty, staff, parents and alumni committed to the total education of our students grades Pre-K - Eighth.  In over 150 years of the school's operation, we have educated over 3,500 students who have made a positive change to the world around them.

At St. Clare Catholic School, you will find countless traditions and a sense of community among the families that share common morals and values.  St. Clare provides an environment which values excellence in spirituality, leadership, and service.

St. Clare currently has over 490 students including our renowned preschool program.  This makes us one of the largest Catholic Pre-K – 8th grade schools in the area.

In line with our mission, our hope for each child is that through the value of incorporating faith formation into all aspects of their education, we are not only building smart students, but we are building strong Catholics who will lead the way in our faith as they grow.
