Welcome to St. Mel Catholic School!

St. Mel School was founded in 1959 by the Sisters of Mercy who had a vision where children are educated in heart and mind, formed to be men and women of faith, learning, virtue, and service to others. It is that vision that lives on today! Our students appreciate our proud history as well as the sense of community that supports them.  

A Catholic faith identity is at the heart of St. Mel School. This is what sets us apart from other schools and draws us together as a community.  

Our curriculum is academically challenging and is designed to help students prepare for high school and beyond. The Student Learning Expectations and the Education In Virtue program, encourage the children to become life-long learners and to develop care for self and others. We believe that by cultivating critical thinking, empathy, and gratitude in our students, we prepare them for success in work, family, and community.
