Low student/teacher ratio provides more attention to students at all skill levels.
Mean cost per pupil is $5,847, less than half the national average of $12,608.
Catholic schools provide over $24 billion a year in savings for the nation.
Students in Catholic schools demonstrate higher academic achievement than their public school peers from similar socioeconomic backgrounds.
Catholic school students are more likely to pray daily, attend church more often, retain a Catholic identify as an adult, and donate more to the Church.
St. Cletus School is first and foremost an extension of St. Cletus Church. There is no better time than childhood to help build the foundation of a lifelong Catholic faith. All of our students receive age-appropriate instruction in their Catholic faith and express their faith through participation in daily prayer, attendance at regular school Masses, reception of the sacraments, and participation in service projects.
As a part of our faith community, parents are encouraged to participate in the spiritual, intellectual and social development of their children. The enthusiasm and dedication of parent volunteers contributes to the school’s warm atmosphere and plays an important role in our school’s success. Parents help the school in many ways including participation in the Family Student Association, School Board, Marketing Committee, and Technology Committee; assistance in the classroom, library, office, and lunchroom; coaching sports; and leading clubs, scouts, and other activities.
High standards for academics is a priority. For over six decades, administrators, faculty, and staff have worked tirelessly to meet and surpass the highest levels of academic standards as measured by the performance of our students and our school as a whole. Our accreditation and our 2014 National Blue Ribbon award is a reflection of this commitment.
