Welcome to St. Croix Catholic School!
The richness of the history of St. Croix Catholic School has laid the foundation for our school. Since 1856, excellence in education has developed. The Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, the Benedictine nuns from St. Joseph, MN and now the Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia Congregation have staffed the school. From a Benedictine Charism to a Dominican Charism, a vibrant faith-filled community, guided by the Holy Spirit, is forming students with the gifts of each child to fulfill the plan that God has providentially designed for each.
St. Croix Catholic School is unique in that young families entrust their children to us! At each grade level each child is treasured as they are made in God’s image and likeness. Here, lies their dignity as a human person created for greatness.
Our school program forms and instructs children to be all that God intends them to be, to use their gifts for the good of others, to be virtuous leaders, and to be holy. This is the greatness of St. Croix Catholic School. Integration of the Catholic Faith and Reason provides the solid foundation for life. The whole child is formed spiritually in a life lived with and for God; intellectually each child is taught to have a sense of awe and wonder and to have a thirst for the truth in all of God’s created world; socially each child experiences the gift of friendship and learns to work with others and to have a sense of service to others; emotionally the children learn to deal with their emotions in a healthy manner; morally the children live in obedience to God’s laws for He knows what is best for each person; physically each child forms good habits of hygiene, nutrition, and exercise; culturally each child is respected for who they are – ethnicity – likenesses and differences, and customs and are taught to see others as God sees them.
Our focus is to form young virtuous leaders who think critically, work together in collaboration, and problem solve in living according to Gospel values to transform the culture in which they live.
We are grateful for St. Croix Catholic School for it has been formed from generations of teachers, students, and parents who have gone before us. At the foot of the Cross of Christ we pray that all who are a part of this community know the reason for our school and that the love with which our Savior died for us is the love that is given to others here: “Whatever you do to the least of my brothers, you do to me.” Mt. 25:45
“Show the children that you love them, teach them to love.” Archbishop Pittau
