Christ-like In All We Do
Infant of Prague Catholic School is a consolidation of two area Catholic schools--Saint Francis, established in 1952 and Holy Spirit, established in 1962.
Infant of Prague Catholic School serves Pre-K3 through eighth grade. Our campus has a library, computer lab, gymnasium, cafeteria facilities and playground located on the site of the Infant of Prague Catholic Church.
Our mission is to provide excellence in education within a Catholic Christian environment. This environment will foster the academic, spiritual, emotional and physical development of each child in accordance with his or her unique talents and gifts.
† Children are the center of our concern and the reason for us being here.
† Quality Catholic education calls us to integrate Gospel teachings and values with real life.
† All secular subjects need to be taught in the light of these values.
† Parents are the primary educators of their children; therefore, we work closely with them in both the school and parish setting.
† Students of all faiths, ethnic origins, and economic levels contribute to our world community; thus, we welcome all students and strive to create an environment that reflects the dignity of each person.
† The faith shared with parents, teachers and students is nourished by prayer and worship within the total life of our school and parish community.
