About St. Mel Catholic School


About Us

St. Mel School was founded in 1959 by the Sisters of Mercy who had a vision where children are educated in heart and mind, formed to be men and women of faith, learning, virtue, and service to others. It is that vision that lives on today! Our students appreciate our proud history as well as the sense of community that supports them.

St. Mel School is a close-knit community dedicated to providing an education steeped in Catholic identity and tradition. We have a dedicated faculty and staff, active parent associations, and generations of loyal alumni, many of whom are parents of current students.

A Catholic faith identity is at the heart of St. Mel School. We are dedicated to providing an education grounded in the Catholic tradition. This is what sets us apart from other schools and draws us together as a community.

Our curriculum is academically challenging and is designed to help students prepare for high school and beyond. The Student Learning Expectations and the Education In Virtue program, encourage children to become lifelong learners and to develop care for themselves and others. We believe that by cultivating critical thinking, empathy, and gratitude in our students, we prepare them for success in work, family, and community.

The majority of Saint Mel School graduates enter honors or college preparatory courses at Jesuit High School, St. Francis High School, and Christian Brothers High School. Most continue on to colleges and universities. We are blessed to contribute to their intellectual and spiritual growth.
