Philosophy

“It is an exciting time for us here at St. Monica, we have so much to look forward to as we endeavor to provide the best opportunity for each individual child to flourish.”

St. Monica is dedicated to teaching the whole child, meeting them where they are and encouraging growth and development at every level while providing small class size, talented and nurturing faculty, and a challenging academic program that will cultivate critical thinking and creativity in their students, while instilling moral values in a Christ-centered environment.

In union with parents and guardians as the primary educators of our children, St. Monica Catholic School promotes the Good News of Jesus Christ, as is expressed in our Catholic faith. St. Monica Catholic School offers a quality, Private Catholic School Education to children from Mercer Island, Bellevue, Renton, Newcastle, Seattle and the surrounding Puget Sound communities.

Our exceptional curriculum enriches our student’s educational journey. At each level, we introduce appropriate material in logical sequence. St. Monica Catholic School prepares the way of our youngest students by first defining and describing the destination of our oldest. We will continue to adjust the pace and the scope of our curriculum to ensure a program, excellent and exhilarating, for these young people whom we teach and with whom we learn.

St. Monica Catholic School will;

  • Motivate and encourage our children to reach their highest potential by offering a challenging curriculum and a supportive environment, designed to empower them with knowledge and self-discipline.
  • Foster a Catholic environment, providing for the growth of the whole child by focusing on spiritual, academic, physical, and moral development.
  • Invite our children to live a life modeled on the gospel values by encouraging a life of prayer, sacraments, and service to one another and our larger community.
  • Provide opportunities for our children to be leaders in our school and community, instilling in them the awareness that they can make a difference in our world.
