School Mission & Philosophy

Mission Statement


St. Emydius School is a faith-filled parish school committed to providing an authentic Catholic education for the children of the parish and the surrounding community.  Inspired and nourished by the Gospel message, the clergy, faculty, staff, and parents

collaborate to help each child become a responsible individual sharing in the mission of Christ and His evangelization.






The St. Emydius School Community dedicates itself to the implementation of the philosophy that Catholic education aims at the complete development of the whole person.


The faculty, support 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 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.
