Principal's Welcome

It is my pleasure to welcome you to St. Brendan School’s website, which serves as both an introduction to the school for newcomers and an active tool for our students and parents.

St. Brendan  School is a phenomenal place where children learn in a Christ-centered environment. As principal of the school, I am so proud of our educational program for producing students who are life-long Christians, informed decision makers, global citizens, highly effective communicators, and twenty-first century learners. Our program is known for providing educational excellence in a safe and nurturing environment. The academic program piques the interests of the students and addresses the needs of each child.

While recognizing the role of parents as primary educators, St. Brendan’s teachers are committed to educating their students in an active and engaging learning environment. They teach students to think critically, evaluate and synthesize information, communicate their ideas effectively, and develop their creativity within a rich and varied curriculum. Teaching methods include cooperative and collaborative learning, critical thinking, hands-on learning, and application of concepts to real-life situations.

When you enter St. Brendan School, you become a part of our family. Students do not come through the doors alone; their families enter with them. Families, students, and the school faculty and staff commit themselves to our shared vision. We all work in partnership to achieve and build upon the excellence of St. Brendan School.

We measure progress by our students' success upon leaving St. Brendan School as confident and competent life-long learners. Our graduates are accepted at some of the city’s top-ranked high schools, where they successfully meet the challenges of this next step on their educational journey. I proudly invite you to browse our website and visit St. Brendan School.
