Catholic Identity 
In addition to the religious education and formation received in the classroom, students have the opportunity to celebrate the Sacraments throughout the year. The celebration of the Holy Mass takes place weekly, with the entire student body gathering in the Church, this includes any Holy Days of Obligation that take place on a school day. The Sacrament of Confession is offered twice a year during the school day for children who have already made their first Confession.

The Staff of Saint Helena Catholic School works together to ensure every child is being offered every opportunity to succeed.  Staff and parents collaborate to recognize any areas in which students may need additional help.  Title I services are available for students who are identified as needing extra support in math and reading, and classes are held before school with Saint Helena teachers.
