There is a long tradition of Catholic school education at St. Celestine Parish.

St. Celestine School is comprised of over 400 students in grades Preschool 3 through Grade 8. The students at St. Celestine School receive a well rounded, challenging educational program that includes art, music, library, physical education, technology, as well as strong programs in religion language arts, math, science, and social studies.

Our students achieve above the national average in test scores in every subject at every level. Our students’ success is partly due to the dedication of the teachers of our school who give above and beyond what is expected.

The school as a whole acts out Gospel values through liturgy, prayer, and service projects.

Our school stands out because of its Catholic identity. Everyone involved with St. Celestine School, the faculty, staff, students, and parents feel that we are a vibrant, faith-filled important part of the total parish of St. Celestine.
