Saint Alphonsus School is committed to promoting the development of the whole child in an environment where Gospel values are integrated within the reality of daily school life. In collaboration with parents, our faculty, administration and parish priests foster a faith-filled response to life. While recognizing the dignity of each individual, Saint Alphonsus School community fosters an awareness of the needs of the human family. Students are challenged to develop their gifts and talents that they might help improve the quality of life for others and thus make a difference in our society.
The dedicated staff of Saint Alphonsus School seek to respond to the particular needs of each student. Through instructional and developmental programs, as well as a variety of student activities which incorporate cultural, athletic and leadership opportunities, students discover and develop their potential.
The charisma of the Sisters of Mercy and the mutuality of relationships which exist within the school community foster a warm and hospitable school environment. We reaffirm our commitment to teach the truths of our Catholic faith and to strengthen the development of self-worth, service opportunities, academic achievement and leadership. As we move forward in the 21st century, our school is committed to providing a quality education while responding to the emerging needs of our students and the community.
Founded as a parish school in 1964, St. Alphonsus School has grown under the guidance of the Sisters of Mercy. St. Alphonsus School is committed to promoting the beliefs of the Catholic faith while promoting quality education. The integration of prayer, doctrine and religious experience is a vital part of the spiritual development of the students and therefore a focus of our curriculum.
Social development of the students is encouraged through outreach and family service projects which help the less advantaged members of our local and global community. Students experience 21st century learning environments to cultivate global learners. Finally, a strong academic program is achieved by the close collaboration of a dedicated staff, an involved parent body and focused students.
