The administration, faculty, staff, parents, and students of St. Jarlath School, continually create and promote the development of a rich Catholic community. St. Jarlath School nurtures and challenges its multi faceted K – 8 student body. Catholic Identity and Catholic Ministry are the keystones and foundation for teaching and learning at St. Jarlath School.
As a Catholic school, we place the highest value on our faith and the way it touches every aspect of our lives. Prayer and religious formation are central to the daily experience at St. Jarlath. Students are taught to actively live their faith and to recognize the role it continually plays in helping them grow as caring, moral individuals.
At St. Jarlath School, our Catholic beliefs are woven throughout all facets of academic and social life. Our goal is to develop within each of our children a moral conscience - a soul - that will help guide them in today’s world.
While our curriculum emphasizes the Catholic faith, students are also taught to understand and respect people of every religious background. All are welcome.
