Our Mission ...

St. Edward School is a Catholic Franciscan community which builds on the traditions of faith, family and educational excellence in a nurturing environment.  Here, by the living example of Jesus in our teachers and our Franciscan priests, we prepare our students  to have the moral values, integrity and knowledge to become servant leaders in a diverse and changing world.


What Makes Us Special ...


Academic excellence

Our students continuously achieve high standards of academic achievement --
Outperforming their diocesan and national counterparts on standardized testing, placing regionally, state-wide, and nationally in educational competitions like National History Day, Science Fairs, Catholic Daughters Educational Contest, and Knights of Columbus Vocations Contest.



As members of a Catholic, Franciscan community, our faculty,
staff, and students share in a rich, faith-filled environment which fosters the development of all individuals spiritually and socially in a warm, loving, family-like atmosphere.  Whether it be at Mass, in the classroom, on the playground or in a service project, our faith brings students to know themselves and others as children of God with many gifts and talents to share.



 "Step one foot in the door and you feel it ... love was given to me here."

Supporting St. Edward School

Tuition, fund-raisers and church subsidies are necessary to financially support St. Edward School.  We also apply for grants to help institute new programs or to update materials, but grants for Catholic Schools are not easy to find.

There are several ways for people who believe in Catholic education to help St. Edward School:

  • Donations to the Annual Appeal -- help bring cultural enrichment programs to the students as well as support for existing programs. These donations are tax deductible.

  • Endowments - would allow the administration to use only the interest to help support families who cannot afford tuition, but wish to send their children to St. Edward School.

  • Bequests - remembering the school in your will would help keep tuition from increasing and would help in maintaining the school facilities.

  • Support a Student -- make a donation towards a specific child's tuition or to any student needing financial help. Cost: $214/month

  • Donations to the Teachers' Wish Lists:

  • Donation Program:  Donate your car, boat, truck, RV, Jet Ski or snowmobile to the St Edward School and receive a tax deduction.  This no cost, no hassle process begins when you contact our fundraising partner, Donation Line LLC at 877-227-7487.  Make sure to ask for our extension, 1809.  Or you can click here, "Donate Your Car Now", and complete the Vehicle Donation Form on line.  Make sure to select the St Edward School from the dropdown list.  Please have your title in hand when you donate.
