Our Mission

The mission of St. Helena Catholic School is to develop the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, and physical character of each unique student in partnership with parents and

the Church community.


Our instruction is founded on the Catholic faith, inspired by the Gospel life of Jesus, and rooted in the sacramental life of the Church.


Principal's Welcome

Welcome to the St. Helena Catholic School community!  Our school has been a neighborhood foundation since 1926, and we are known for cultivating students with high academic potential, self-discipline, and a desire to serve their community.


As a staff we are united in one belief:


“The human being is single, unique, and unrepeatable.” -- Pope John Paul II


In choosing a Catholic education at St. Helena, we can assure you that your child will have personal instruction, both in their faith and academically, that connects with their unique talents and interests. We share your goals and will partner with you as we strive to develop the spiritual, academic, physical, and emotional character of each student.
