We are proud to announce our school plans for celebrating

Catholic Schools Week

January 28, 2024- February 3, 2024

Each year Catholic Schools throughout the United States celebrate their wonderful work and the wonderful people who make it possible.

Now Open for Registrations for 2024-2025 school year!

St. Germaine Catholic School, a U.S. Department of Education Blue Ribbon School, is now open for Registrations for the 2024-2025 school year. Everyone is invited to tour the school after the 9:30am mass on January 28th.  No reservations are required for the Open House.  

Open House January 28th, 2024 10:30am – 12noon

We are planning a fun week with many interactive activities for the kids to celebrate Catholic Schools Week!  Registrations for the 2024-2025 school year will be taken by calling the school office or visiting registration page.   We offer in person learning for all grades supplemented by numerous eLearning resources.   Class sizes are kept at a minimum so early enrollment, especially for our Pre-K Early Advantage Program, is strongly encouraged.

Catholic Schools Week begins January 28th with a Liturgy (9:30am in the Church) to mark the start of Catholic Schools Week. The Catholic Schools Week (CSW) 2023 – 2026 theme is “Catholic Schools: United in Faith and Community.” Catholic schools have an irreplaceable role in the Church’s evangelizing mission. Building on the central goal of Catholic schools to form saints, Catholic schools teach and embrace the whole person, body, mind and spirit. The fact that all members of a Catholic school community share the Christian vision of faith that Christ is the foundation of Catholic education is what unites the school as a faith-filled community.
