St. Columbanus School is a faith community in which students, Pre-K to Grade 8, are encouraged to develop their intellectual, emotional, spiritual, social and physical gifts to their fullest potential. Students are taught Christian principles to guide them in making moral decisions as they live out their Christian role of service in the global community.St. Columbanus Philosophy
We, the faculty and staff of St. Columbanus School, guide our students in their spiritual, intellectual, physical and social growth. We provide an academically demanding curriculum in a nurturing Catholic environment that encourages and aids each student to develop his/her intellect to its full potential.
Our Academic purpose is to prepare students to be critical thinkers and be able to adapt to life's challenges intellectually, effectively, personally and socially.
To reach our goals we believe students should learn to interact with one another in a mutually supportive, cooperative, respectful atmosphere
