Located in the heart of South Philadelphia, St. Monica School provides a faith-based education, while integrating technology into student instruction. Critical thinking skills, creativity, and enthusiasm for learning are fostered in all students. A variety of teaching methods and strategies engage students to achieve their highest potential and compete in the global marketplace.
St. Monica School offers educational opportunities for students in preschool-prekindergarten (ages 3-5), and kindergarten through eighth grade and after school programs.
All students in kindergarten through eighth grade are eligible for free breakfast and lunch.
Our son has attended the St. Monica School for 9 years, and the experience has been invaluable! The IHM sisters, priests, faculty and staff have assisted our child in building a strong catholic identity as well as a desire to be a positive part of the community. The school offers rigorous, dynamic, and engaging instruction utilizing state-of-the-art technology. Sending my child to St. Monica was one of the best decisions I've made as a parent.
