St. Veronica Catholic School is a community of learners bound by the desire to provide the very best “whole child” education for students. The school’s traditions reflect a commitment to fostering faith and academic development for students. Throughout the year teachers, staff, administration, students, and parents gather as a school community to share in liturgical events and academic endeavors. Our many traditions reflect the caring, compassionate and faith filled community in which we exist. This is truly a school community where students are known on a first name basis by all teachers and staff and are celebrated as unique gifts from God. St. Veronica teachers take advantage of the small class environment to bring innovative teaching methods to students and incorporate technology into all aspects of the curriculum. From STEM centered science curriculum to an outstanding and robust art and music program, our students receive an education that challenges all types of learners in all settings. Furthermore, our teachers and students embrace the call to move beyond the classroom and volunteer within the larger community.

While standardized test scores, tradition and academic excellence are important factors as to why St. Veronica Catholic School is worthy of this designation, it is the community-wide belief that academic and personal excellence is the result of hard work and care for one another that makes our community exceptional. The unofficial motto at St. Veronica Catholic School has been “The Little School That Could.” This Blue Ribbon status and the honor that accompanies it have led us to change that motto to “The Little School That Can!”
