Nurturing faith, values, and stewardship

 

In Every Student

Developing each child to their fullest potential

St. Euphrasia School is a Catholic community dedicated to nurturing each student’s faith, values, and stewardship while developing the academic achievement of all learners. We are an intrinsic part of the parish community’s Catholic education ministry. As facilitators of learning, we recognize the role of parents as the primary educators of their children. We provide an educational program that is sufficiently varied and flexible to foster the development of the whole person.
