St. Louis School...where spirit and mind rejoice!

St. Louis School...where spirit and mind rejoice!


St. Louis School is a Prek-8th grade coeducational school where Catholic teaching, values and academic excellence endure and where spirit and mind rejoice! Twice named a National Blue Ribbon School, 530 students thrive in this caring, close-knit community that nurtures their intellect and creativity, while instilling joy for learning, spiritual values, and social responsibility. Our students are encouraged to follow the 3R's: reverence, respect and responsibility. They are challenged to work to their highest potential through a rigorous academic curriculum including an accelerated math program, opportunities designed for students with diverse learning needs, and a focus on nurturing the human spirit through the arts.

St. Louis engages students as 21st Century learners with interactive technology in all classrooms, a fully-equipped science lab, coding and 3-D design and printing. Numerous extracurricular activities such as CyberSTEM and robotics provide exciting opportunities for growth in STEM-related fields.

The school's mission, "Through our commitment to Catholic values and academic excellence, St. Louis School exists to educate lifelong learners who transform the world through intellect, love, justice and peace," is central to life at SLS. With this in mind, in 2016 the school launched the Louis IX program, accepting two students with Down syndrome who have enriched the lives of the entire community.

Underlying the school's success is a dedicated faculty and staff who partner with parents to raise children who live in the light of faith with integrity and curiosity, eager to use their knowledge and skills to change the world.
