Our Mission

Creating a pathway to higher learning with Jesus at the center.

Our Vision

The future of the Catholic Church lies in our youth. As such, it is our responsibility to foster the development of each child’s God-given gifts through the Pillars of Faith Formation, which are Prayer, Sacrament, Hospitality and Service. We recognize parents as the primary educators of their children; and together we work to create a pathway to higher learning with Jesus at the center through our academic, spiritual and social values.

Our Values


Beginning at the early childhood level, our evidence-based STEM programming allows our students to interact, discover, and explore cross-curricularly, while developing a deep love for learning. Our students are problem solvers, able to develop and test theories in all academic areas. STEM programming drives learning within the classrooms and hallways of St. Isidore Catholic School, as well as in each child’s everyday life. The result of our programming shows in our standardized test results, with our students scoring well above national averages. Our curriculum follows diocesan learning standards, with an overall focus on God’s Truth, Beauty, and Goodness, which simply allows us to teach more.


Our Catholic Faith is interwoven throughout the entire fabric of our school and its programs. Students plan and participate in class liturgies, school Masses, and daily prayer. St. Isidore Catholic School students receive sacramental preparation as a part of their school day. Our students experience a personal relationship with Jesus, while understanding traditions of the Church, Gospel Values and Servant Leadership.


At St. Isidore Catholic School, our students, families, faculty and staff truly become one family; EVERYONE belongs! We partner with parents to diligently care for the social and emotional facets of development. Our teachers are true advocates for their students and strive to be an example of Jesus in every way. Our priests and deacons enjoy partnering with our teachers to allow the beauty of Catholic education to take root in our students and within our larger school family. We believe in cultivating the entire child through a variety of offerings.

Proudly teaching the heart of the matter since 1921!
