Building a Foundation for Faith, Family, and Academics since 1963.

Welcome to Saint Zachary Catholic School!

Welcome to Saint Zachary Catholic School. For over 50 years, our school has provided a quality Catholic education for Pre-School through eighth grade students. As a result, our students consistently score well above average on national achievement tests while developing confidence, respect, and leadership skills. Saint Zachary School is committed to working with parents and guardians to develop children who are enriched academically, socially, and spiritually, becoming good Christians with a life-long passion for learning. Please contact us for a tour to experience our dedication as we work towards Building a Foundation for Faith, Family, and Academics.

SOAR: Show responsibility, Own your learning,

Accept God’s plan for you, Respect yourself and others.
