Our Admissions

The St. Emydius Catholic School Community implements the philosophy of Catholic education as it dedicates itself to the mission of the development of the whole person: mind, body, soul, and spirit.​

The faculty, staff, administration, pastor, parish, parents, and students constitute our community of faith through sharing their experiences of prayer, wisdom, and knowledge. Realizing that parents are the primary educators of their children and, in partnership with them, the faculty of St. Emydius Catholic School works to help the child build his/her character by being models of faith, setting high standards of excellence, and by utilizing the gifts bestowed by God.

The faith community accepts the challenge to educate all students and families who desire a Catholic education.
