For over fifty years, Saint Bartholomew School has prepared students to lead fulfilling and purposeful lives in a climate of caring, trust, and respect rooted in the Gospel spirit of love, service, and charity. The model of community we seek is one that embraces our core mission: to love, educate, and inspire our children to live the teachings of Jesus Christ. It is in this sacred landscape that we are authentically present in the classroom and deeply connected with our students, and these connections are held in our hearts, where intellect and spirit meet.
We guide our students to weave a world of learning through best practice in instruction and learning in an environment that is exciting, collaborative, and reflective. An overarching theme of academic optimism, equity, and excellence prevails. Our enrollment is strong and increasing as we continuously update our technology, curriculum, facilities, books, library, professional development, and safety procedures in order to maintain the framework of Best Practice structures and proven cutting-edge implementation strategies.
We partner with our parents/guardians, volunteers, Home School Association, and School Advisory Committee to offer an affordable and outstanding education. Student leaders are developed through our Mentoring and Buddy Programs. We seek to develop and make visible the creativity, productivity, richness, and fruitfulness present in each student through our highly qualified faculty. It is for these reasons that, as stated by parents of a recent graduate in a testimonial, “Saint Bartholomew School should be the standard for all Catholic Elementary Schools.”
Come and see what the Saint Bartholomew School family has to offer!
God bless you,
Mrs. Ann Wierzbicki, R.N., M.A.E./Ed.S.
The mission of Saint Bartholomew School is to love, educate and inspire our children to live the teachings of Jesus Christ.
