Saint Helena School

St. Helena School provides educational programs in Pre-Kindergarten through eighth grade to children with various intellectual abilities. The Pre-K Program includes one full day class for four year olds, one half-day class for four year olds and three half-day sessions per week for three year olds. Our school is deeply rooted in the legacy of Mother Catherine McAuley, founder of the Sisters of Mercy. In the Mercy tradition, we proclaim our mission to be Beacons of Light and Hope through Service. We affirm the Gospel values through our commitment to the teachings of Jesus and provide our students with the knowledge and tools to make just choices in life. Our tradition of academic excellence is due to the work of a dedicated faculty and administration, as well as an involved parent group. All work together to form a nurturing community for our students. Strong in our belief in God’s message as revealed by Jesus Christ, we are led by the Spirit to live a life of faith in action. In the Mercy tradition, we proclaim our message of hope in our task of building the City of God on earth. This calling is evidenced in our daily response of making a commitment towards a conversion of the heart. Our chosen path is distinct; it calls each of us to be the best that we can be so that each person will be able to walk confidently with a strong faith, a vision of hope, and a love for one another. Our faith community continues to make a significant difference in bringing about the Reign of God on earth.
