We are Saint Juliana!

We are Saint Juliana!

Our parish motto "Come Walk Together the Way of Christ" summarizes our spirit, drawing together staff, parents, and the community to serve our students by providing a safe, supportive environment. Family and community are crucial to our success. We are proud that many graduates of Saint Juliana return to the school with their own families so traditions continue to grow and flourish.

Saint Juliana School offers a challenging program that strengthens skills and natural abilities, inspires creativity, and develops problem solving and critical thinking skills. Teachers motivate students by recognizing and acknowledging academic success and effort, engage students by differentiating instruction, and offer daily opportunities for each child to share their God-given talents. Students develop a mindset about the importance of responsible citizenship and leadership. They graduate as compassionate individuals willing to share their gifts with others.

In recent years, with parent and community support, the school has seen an evolution in its facilities and programs with the addition of an activity center, a fully equipped science lab, and a renovated computer lab. Instructional technology is integrated daily in authentic and meaningful ways. Computers, Smart Boards and mobile devices extend, enrich, and support the curriculum. Each student has network credentials, email, and access to Google tools. Students learn digital citizenship skills through a blend of direct instruction and multimedia platforms. Such enhancements are a critical investment in our students' success and allow us to deliver a collaborative 21st century education.
