At St. Catherine of Siena school, we believe that education is not just for the mind. We are committed to educating the whole child, mind, body and soul. While striving to achieve the highest of academic standards, we will not forget the beauty and gift of each child present in our school. Our talented and dedicated teachers deliver unique and challenging lessons to inspire a life long love of learning. They skillfully blend the latest in educational technology into the curriculum giving students opportunities to engage in 21st century learning. We are committed to a personalized learning model that will help each child to reach his or her full potential.

We are blessed with a community of parents who organize and participate in events such as our Apple run, movie night and our Annual golf outing.
One visit to our school and you will see that the smiles are contagious, the positive energy is hard to miss. We would like to welcome your family to our family
Welcome to St, Catherine of Siena School. Where your child’s future begins.
"I have been a SCSS parent since fall 2015 when my oldest began second grade. I have a 6th grader, a kindergartener, and my youngest is in PreK 4. I knew we were part of a strong catholic institution but now, more than ever, I am beyond grateful to be part of this community. All of my kids’ teachers were fully prepared for this school closure - all of them have been in constant communication with my kids - from video conferencing in 6th grade to virtual story time in kindergarten and even to online group video chatting and discussion in PreK, SCSS has gone above and beyond the call of duty to care for my kids. Science, Spanish and even music and art teachers have all been equally as involved in the kids’ distance learning as well. Our new principal takes leadership to a new level and has been there for us and with us every single day. SCSS has left no stone unturned and for this, I am eternally grateful. This is hard, everyone is struggling in one way or another, but the anxiety of my kids’ education being delayed has been completely erased. I am 100% confident that all three of them will be ready in the fall for 7th, 1st and kindergarten. I cannot recommend our school enough. Thank you, SCSS, for banding together and taking such wonderful care of our children during such a confusing time in life. -Parent
"When I think of St. Catherine of Siena School, I think of community. I know that there is always someone to turn to if I need help in any way. I love helping others as well, and we do a lot of that here at SCSS. There are many opportunities to do God’s work in the service of others, whether it is with the Student Council, SCSS Cares Club or through food drives or Penny Wars, we are taught to think of others first and to care for those around us. SCSS is my home away from home. It is a place where I can share my faith in God." -Student, Jules
