As the early Church was commissioned by Christ to evangelize the world, so St. Charles Borromeo Catholic School shares locally in that same mission. This is done by recalling our creation in God’s Image, teaching and reinforcing the Gospel message, seeking personal and academic excellence, while providing an affordable Catholic education for those who desire it.
Who we are:
St. Charles Borromeo Catholic School strongly holds that education without an authentic value system cannot address the complete person. The teachings of the Catholic faith are not only imparted during religion classes but by gathering as a community for Mass, as well as the reception of the Sacraments, and in countless interactions throughout the school day. Our curriculum emphasizes a sound religious education and a strong foundation in language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, computer literacy, Spanish, physical education and fine arts. Our goal is to challenge students to excel while giving them the tools, time and help needed to succeed.
Father Charles Doran founded St. Charles Parish in December of 1938. In the fall of 1939 he completed his first building project, the original portion of the current school building, which contained the Church, a small convent and the school. On September 15, 1939, St. Charles Borromeo School opened with 180 registered students and 10 faculty members. Since that time the school has had two major additions and continues to serve the education needs of the parish and community.
The success of St. Charles Borromeo School is due to our caring, faithful and dedicated staff. Throughout our history, the pastors of St. Charles Parish have been consistent advocates for Catholic education and working in partnership with parents and faculty, seek to develop the gifts of each and every student as they strive for excellence. The majority of the current faculty holds at least one masters degree and has taught for more than 15 years. We encourage our faculty to attend continuing educations classes and workshops to stay current with educational best practices.
