What Makes St. Henry School Different?

What Makes St. Henry School Different?

Parents choose St. Henry School because of our unique blend of academic and interpersonal focuses. Everyone - school staff, parents, students, and community members are connected, confident, and contributing. These core values, called "The 3 C's", are embedded into the mission and integrated into curriculum and school culture. They are not designed to increase test scores or academics, rather those outcomes flow from children feeling welcome, safe, and most of all ready to learn.

Connected: St. Henry places intentional emphasis on the spiritual and character education of every child. To connect students to each other, multi-grade level teams are created for participation in special activities throughout the year. Students and staff are connected to God through daily prayer, weekly Masses, discussions, and daily actions.

Confident: Children at St. Henry learn to be confident in who they are. They are challenged academically to reach their full potential through strong programs and well-designed lessons. Because each child is unique and learns differently, our teachers and staff are empowered to individualize instruction and accommodate unique learning styles and interests.

Contributing: We share a commitment to helping students become caring and contributing citizens with qualities that are valued by their families and the communities in which they live. St. Henry School has a strong commitment to combining classroom instruction with meaningful service. Children learn to be honest and thoughtful, to stand up for their principles, to care about others, to act responsibly, and to make sound moral choices.
