Established in 1914, St. Helen Catholic School strives to educate the whole child. In doing so, a spiritual, academic, and social foundation is created. This formation, rooted in Gospel values, enables the graduate to develop as a responsible Christian citizen. We believe that it is a child's right to be educated in a nurturing and safe environment. Daily activities encourage the sense of positive self-esteem as well as the development of self-discipline. We unite for racial justice and celebrate cultural diversity. We promote active service to the school, parish, and community.
