Saint Brigid of Kildare School provides a traditionally strong Catholic education supported by innovative and current methods. Guided by its mission statement and rooted in Christ, its award winning school community provides Catholic faith formation and strong academic foundations to inspire lifelong learners and leaders in the 21st century. It recognizes each student’s potential for success, and emphasizes academic achievement, perseverance, and reflection. Its team of administrators, educators, and support staff collaborate to create an atmosphere that is most conducive to developing the students as learners, leaders, and people of faith and service.

Saint Brigid of Kildare students complete rigorous studies in English-language arts, mathematics, science, social studies and religion, supported by classes in art, music, technology, Spanish, library media and physical education. Technology is integrated throughout the content areas and personal Chromebooks are issued to students in grades 5-8 to enhance their learning.

Diverse learning styles and learning needs are supported by differentiated methods and instruction, by intervention specialists, and by the Special People in Catholic Education committee. Students may also choose to participate in the school's ALSO program, extending their learning and service opportunities after school.

Students participate in the school's service-learning program, acting on their maturing faith. They share common experiences and undertake efforts as a student body, growing deeper in Christ’s love while sharing their gifts with their community.

A 2008 Blue Ribbon School, Saint Brigid of Kildare School also earned the 2012 Innovations in Catholic Education Award.
