St. Aloysius is more than a school. It is a community where parents, students, teachers, pastoral staff, and administrators work as one to create a unique environment that truly fosters the development of the whole child. Initiatives such as the Daily Five reading approach, technology integration across grade levels, and goal-focused professional development ensure student success, reflecting the school's mission to instill a life-long love for learning while achieving excellence in the classroom. Academically, students are meeting and exceeding goals at school, local, and national levels. In addition, a family feel is cultivated through programs such as the 7th-8th grade buddies which pairs older students with those in kindergarten and first grade. This tradition provides positive mentoring and a sense of belonging in the school. The middle school community groups, which are heterogeneous groupings of 6th-8th graders, work together in social outreach endeavors allowing students to experience volunteerism on a local and regional level. With faculty guidance and support, students have recently completed projects such as furnishing an apartment for a refugee family, providing supplies for disabled individuals, stocking local food banks, and training Special Olympics athletes. Experiencing this type of service firsthand gives students a broader sense of society while instilling a passion for social justice and an understanding of their role as a citizen of the world. As St. Aloysius continues to strive for excellence, the school is confident that their strong community develops students spiritually, socially, and academically.
