Welcome to Our Saviour School— a faith-based learning environment that focuses on developing your child's potential by promoting spiritual, intellectual, and physical growth, with the ultimate goal of developing the whole child and encourage them to lead and serve.
We recently completed a Long Range Strategic Plan to focus on continued success at Our Saviour School. There are four domains in this long range plan focusing on Catholic Identity, Academic Excellence, Enrollment and Marketing, and Finance and Business Operations. Committees have been diligently creating these goals, objectives, and action steps to provide strong implementation solutions to identified challenges. This five year plan will provide strong guidance as we continue to expand our instructional and spiritual excellence.
We continue to thrive on our academics, athletic success, and our large co-curricular offerings in choir, band, chess, bowling, musicals, scholastic bowl, and geography bowl, just to name a few. Our students' opportunities to be involved are limitless and great success is shown in many areas. With these activities our students continue to prove their dedication to serve their school, parish, and community.
If you think Our Saviour School would be a good fit for your child, explore our new website to learn more, make an appointment for a tour, or visit with our parents and students. With our continued growth, Our Saviour School has much to offer its students and we would like to have you be a part of our success!
