A variety of teaching methods and strategies engage students to achieve their highest potential and compete in the global marketplace. 

Educating students from early childhood until high school!

All students in kindergarten through eighth grade are eligible for free breakfast and lunch. 

Parent Testimonial

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.
