We are proud of all of our dedicated teachers who work hard to instill a foundation to create life-long learners. They are deeply committed to their role and are willing to go above and beyond to help our students thrive. The teachers communicate with parents to best assist academic achievement, social connections and emotional well-being.

St. Emily Catholic School accepts the Church’s challenge to create a religious, educational and evangelizing community, enlightened by the gift of faith, which parents, as primary educators, have nurtured. We strive to foster a sense of independence in each student so that he/she may be responsible, respectful, and make right choices. In pursuit of academic excellence, curriculum is implemented to foster and develop the talents of each student.

What Do Parents Say About Us?
Proud to be an Eagle!
Not only am I a parishioner of St. Emily but I also am an alumni. Currently both of my children attend here, and I wholeheartedly am ecstatic because they are surrounded daily by people who genuinely care. It is a rare find in this day and age to find so many people who not only want your child to succeed but foster an environment of the true definition of community in every sense of the word. The teachers and faculty are sincere and loving individuals who treat your child as if they were their own. If you choose to enroll your children here, not only will you feel the same way but even more you will know that your children are being surrounded by people who are making a positive impact on their lives daily.

Easy Transition to Kindergarten
We chose St. Emily’s for its full day Kindergarten program and wonderful Kindergarten teachers. The transition from attending preschool for a few hours a day to a full day is not always easy. The teachers know how to handle this transition with ease. I have always felt comfortable e-mailing my daughter’s teacher and her response is always prompt and complete. If you have even the slightest interest in St. Emily’s, I encourage you to reach out to the school for more information. Ask for the principal, Ms. Booth, I’m very impressed with what she has done!Current Family
School feels like Family
Words cannot express how happy we are with St. Emily School. I have twins in Pre K-4 and a 3rd grader. The school feels like a family, from the front office staff to the custodians and everyone in between, they will take the time and help you or just say hello. The teachers are remarkable and dedicated to their job and giving their all to the students. Academically the students are challenged and are encouraged to do their best and be their best. You see this from the Pre-K classes all the way through 8th grade. I have seen my children flourish academically, spiritually and socially. St. Emily staff does a wonderful job with providing a faith based environment. We knew we picked the right school when our 3rd grader said to us “Thank you for sending me to St. Emily.” We are very happy with our decision to enroll our kids at St. Emily School. We would recommend St. Emily to any family who is looking for school that is dedicated to its students, it families and its community.Current Family

All three of my daughters have graduated from Saint Emily School. All of my children have started in Pre-K. I can assure you that Saint Emily School is the best elementary school for your child. The atmosphere at Saint Emily is very welcoming and positive. All of my daughters who have graduated are now taking honors and AP classes in high school because of the great resources that Saint Emily offers. All of the teachers are experienced, knowledgeable, and truly love their career. Because of the teachers’ willingness to help, all of the students have an equal opportunity to succeed in high school and for the years ahead. Saint Emily builds a strong foundation for your child. They also offer a wide variety of sports and clubs that your child can join so that they will be able to grow into a well-rounded person.Parent of Graduates
