Mission of Saint Malachy School

St. Malachy Catholic School (Kindergarten - Grade 6) shares with the parents and parish the responsibility of growth and development of its students spiritually, morally and intellectually. The excellent, co-educational, academic program is permeated with religious and moral values that are emphasized by caring, well-qualified educators in a disciplined environment conducive to learning.

Our purpose is to fully accept Christ's love and spread His word throughout our parish, local community and the world at large.

Welcome from our Principal

Welcome to St. Malachy School! We are a small faith based school located in a friendly mid-western community. As with all Catholic schools, the reason for the existence of our school is Christ. All students receive moral and ethical education across the curriculum. All students are given the opportunity to participate in celebrating the school weekly Mass throughout the year. We believe an excellent education, strong family values, and applied Christian teachings provide a solid foundation for students as they grow into young adults.

Our administrators and staff work diligently to provide a safe and positive learning environment for all students. Our family-like atmosphere is something we value. We work hard to ensure that everyone feels welcome.

Students do not need to be Catholic in order to attend St. Malachy School. We are also able to accommodate students facing a variety of learning challenges.
