About Our School

St. Margaret Catholic School, a ministry of St. Margaret Parish, exists to educate the children of the parish and those who embrace our philosophy of educational excellence in the Catholic tradition through “Service to God and Others.” Guided by the Diocesan Curriculum and the traditions of the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, our students are empowered to excel in academics. Fed and nourished by the Holy Eucharist, our students strive to become active participants in society and the church.

  • As evangelizers, we are dedicated to instilling Catholic morals and values in each child.
  • As educators, we are committed to guiding each student toward reaching their maximum academic potential.
  • As a school, we provide a safe and nurturing environment for our students in which they will thrive.

The Academic Program

We provide competitive programs with well-rounded offerings to educate the whole person. The core curriculum is in alignment with state and national standards and is rooted in the Catholic intellectual tradition.  In addition to the core curriculum, students participate in enrichment courses.

  • Music and art classes are offered to all grade levels.

How we support students with learning differences

The Aquinas Learning Support Program (ALSP) is for students with diagnosed learning disabilities at the elementary and secondary levels. Its unique emphasis is on learning strategies and study skills to help children foster independence. Students are challenged to learn self-acceptance, self-discipline, cooperation skills, consistent work habits, and become responsible members of the community.

The primary role of the Aquinas Learning Support Program is to offer a Christ-centered, quality academic education within a Catholic school environment for children and young adults with diagnosed learning disabilities. The growth of the whole child is a priority. Most importantly is the development of a relationship with God. Students in the ALSP are fully incorporated into the prayer service and liturgical celebrations of the school.

Elementary students receive specialized instruction for half the school day to address their learning disability. They join their peers in their own grade level for religion, social studies, science, physical education, music, computer, and art, thereby assuring integration.


St. Margaret School encourages students to participate in a variety of CYO sports offerings including basketball, volleyball, cheer, and track and field.
