Education with a Religious Core
Education enriched with Christ
As a Catholic school, the religious core of our tradition is rooted in Christianity and the richness of the Roman Catholic tradition. At the core of this tradition is the tenet that we must love one another as God has loved us. St. Matthew Catholic School's Catholic identity does not come simply from the religious instruction. It is embedded in all parts of our daily life at school.
At St. Matthew, not only do your children receive lessons on the basics. They also learn the values they need to make the world a better place to live. They learn that right is always best and that there is value in being good. They learn that we are all children of God, loved by God, and that we should care for others accordingly. Their education is an act of creation – the creation of compassionate members of the world community.
- Prayer integrated throughout the school day

Thank you for blessing our St. Matthew Family with dedicated students, teachers, and parents. Please help us to respect each other and to assist others when they are in need. Help us to take a sincere interest in our class work and give us an understanding of everything that is taught. Open our hearts every day to all the love in our school as we develop new friendships with one another. We ask this in the name of your son, Jesus, who taught us how to forgive and to love.
