School Setting:

St. Vincent de Paul Parish School is an amazing community. Our school is 167 years young! We are dedicated to inspiring a love for learning and empowering students to reach their potential in spiritual growth, academic achievement, creativity and citizenship. Our priority is to keep Christ in our mind, body, and heart in all that we do. Our students receive opportunities and experiences which develop their skills and talents to solve real-world problems. As a state STEM designated school in the Diocese of Cleveland, we integrate the research-based best practice of problem-based learning in the curriculum. We partner with community groups and businesses to help bring awareness to their cause and collaborate on a variety of projects. We have a partnership with St. Vincent - St. Mary High School, our eighth-grade students are given the opportunity to attend daily algebra one classes at the high school. At St. Vincent de Paul Parish School we believe children learn best in a positive faith-filled environment with guidance from teachers who genuinely care for all students and their success. We offer a full-day or half-day preschool for students who are four years old. Our preschool through eighth grade curriculum includes: Religion, Engineering, Spanish, Technology, Music, Art, Health, Physical Education, Math, Science, English Language Arts, and Social Studies. Our students participate in competitions such as Soap Box Derby Gravity Challenge Races, Future City and X-STREAM games. Blessed by the spiritual and financial support of the parish community our students learn and use modern technology with all curriculum in the comfort of air-conditioned classrooms. We strive to promote a sense of community that encourages each child and family to feel welcomed and valued. We believe it is our responsibility to help students become good citizens with a sense of understanding for others in the school community and throughout our world.
