The Whole Child
Our collective goal at St. Mel Catholic School is to educate the whole child in an atmosphere of faith and academic excellence. I would like to share with you briefly how St. Mel School prepares each student to have the tools they need to fulfill their roles as good citizens, productive employees and compassionate leaders.
First and foremost, we are committed to the safety of our students, staff and families. This is evidenced as you enter our gated campus. We consistently follow safety procedures and routines. Second, we practice good health habits and offer Physical Education classes from TK -through 8th grade that encourage healthy behaviors for a lifetime, and our Hot Lunch Program offers healthy food choices. Third, St. Mel School provides a well-rounded curriculum for all students including rigorous classes, resource programs, a wide array of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities and many athletic programs. Next, teachers use skills that make learning interesting and relevant for their students by incorporating various modalities to address different learning styles. Our curriculum supports creativity, critical thinking, problem solving and other twenty-first century skills. Finally, spiritual growth and faith development underscore everything we do for your child.
I assure you St. Mel School is committed to integrating these components to achieve an optimal learning environment. A Catholic education at St. Mel School gives your child an extra "tool" in their tool box for life.
