Providing a Catholic education is one of a parent’s most important duties. I am glad you are considering Saint Zachary Catholic School for your children. We are a school where faith, family, and academics are all part of the educational process.
Academically, we provide a solid elementary education. Our students receive a firm foundation that prepares them for high school and then life beyond.
A Catholic education is a collaborative effort between family and school. At Saint Zachary Catholic School, we encourage and expect parental involvement in all aspects of a student’s education. In addition, we endeavor to create a family atmosphere in our school. Our small class size permits personal attention to the educational, emotional, and spiritual needs of our students. We strive to create an atmosphere of collaboration and respect.
What really makes Saint Zachary School unique is our faith. We are a Catholic school, and we are proud of it. Our students learn how to live out our Catholic faith. Gospel values and following Jesus are incorporated into all that we do. Our students practice the great commandments: love God and love your neighbor. They help each other and treat each other with dignity and respect. As their Pastor, I am most proud of the living and active faith of our students.
Father Piotr Rapcia, Pastor
Building a Foundation for Faith, Family, and Academics since 1963.
Students and faculty come together for the celebration of the Mass as one family in Christ. The celebration of Mass with the school offers the priests an opportunity to reach out to our students in an age appropriate way addressing their unique spiritual needs.
Additionally, students have the opportunity to help lead their peers in worship by being cantors, lectors, and gift bearers. Not only does this help them in their worship, it also helps prepare them to lead the larger community in worship by giving them the confidence and experience they need to be active participants in the Liturgy.
All parents and other family members are always welcome at our all school celebrations of the Mass.
