Why Us?

Why choose St. Charles School?....

 

Our school offers many unique hands-on learning opportunities. We offer a structured learning environment that encourages discipline and accountability. Spanish is taught beginning in Kindergarten. Our students are introduced to technology beginning in pre school through the use of iPads in the classroom and our computer lab.
We also focus on living our faith and giving back to the community. This year alone our student "Ambassador Club" has earned funds through popcorn and water sales once a month. The monies raised have been used to purchase Thanksgiving dinners for Love Inc., adopt a family for Christmas, to assist the "Jesus & Me" church program with needed supplies, and to help support  a community member in need... and their giving continues. At St. Charles we feel community service  should be a part of our students' daily lives.

Many are business owners,community leaders, as well as, mentors for others; such as 2014 Humanitarian Award Winner Chris Weidert.
