Principal and Pastor's Welcome

Principal's Welcome

Welcome to St. Hedwig School, a community of faith and a ministry of St. Hedwig Parish.  The St. Hedwig Faith Community is based on Gospel values, respecting the dignity of each person as Jesus did.  Our mission is to guide our students in the harmonious development of their spiritual, intellectual, psychological, social, and aesthetic gifts.  We endeavor to create a nurturing environment in which all students can develop and learn to work together in mutual respect.

The selection of a school for your child is one of the most important decisions a parent can make.  As a partner with you, the school becomes your child’s home away from home.  I invite you to explore our website for a look at St. Hedwig School.  We welcome your calls to answer any questions and would be happy to arrange a visit to our campus.

Pastor's Welcome

St. Hedwig Catholic Church is proud to have as part of our community a parochial school serving TK-8.  We strive to keep a strong bond between the activities of our parish school and the whole parish, integrating school events and parish events, good communication between the parish staff and school staff.  The mission of the parish is to “Go and make Disciples,” as Jesus said (Matthew 28:19), and this is the reason for our Catholic school as well!


You will find in our school community excellent academics, competitive sports, strong character formation, and faithful discipleship.  We celebrate our nation’s value of freedom of religion and offer an alternative to a purely secular education.  We are intentionally Christian and Catholic and not only teach the basic subjects you could receive anywhere, but we do it in the context of a Christian community of prayer and service to the wider parish and to the local and international community of the Church and world.


We know our children, once graduated from our 8th grade, continue on to excellent academics in high schools around the region.  Our sports programs have always been award-winning, and our participation in the academic decathlon has garnered county-wide recognition.

I know you have many options for the education of your child.  We look forward to assisting you in the full development of your family on every level – spiritually, intellectually, socially, and physically.  As members of our parish school you are also most welcome to worship with us on Sundays and be a part of the life of St. Hedwig Church.
