The St. Alphonsus community upholds the sacred responsibility to provide the greatest spiritual learning environment through embracing the holistic growth and development of each individual student to enable a journey that inspires constant growth in core values, academic learning, physical and mental health and service toward God in one another.
The Staff at St. Alphonsus School is committed to educating each child intellectually, spiritually, socially, emotionally and physically by providing a variety of experiences as a foundation for learning. We make every effort to work in close partnership with parents and the Parish in order to assist our students in their development. To this end we work to provide a safe, nurturing, joyful, caring environment where all of our students can grow to their fullest potential.
