St. Elizabeth Catholic Academy believes that it is an integral part of the educational ministry of the Catholic Church. It exists to provide for the education of the whole child within an environment where spiritual growth, academic excellence and an appreciation of multicultural values are fostered. We wish to provide our students with the opportunity to become contributing members of the Church, community and society.

Message from the Principal

I would like to thank all of you who sent cards and were very thoughtful and so generous. I would also like to thank our art teacher, Mrs. Jackie Merckling, for making our school so festive by decorating the Christmas trees in the lobby and outside. Thank you to our students who made the decorations. In addition I wish to thank Mr. and Mrs. Merckling for organizing and running the very successful "Dinner With Santa." Everyone had a great time! A special thank you to our students and teachers who helped make this year's Christmas Show a huge success.

Our World's Finest Chocolate fundraiser begins on Tuesday, Jan. 3rd. This is a mandatory fundraiser. Please help us make this year's sale a huge success.

Re-registration for St. Elizabeth Catholic Academy is due by January 17th for those students presently attending the Academy. Registration for new students opens on January 29th and continues through Catholic Schools Week.

This year's Catholic Schools Week will begin on January 29th. The theme is "Prayer: The Faith Prayed." Please make every effort to attend the opening liturgy with your child at 11 A.M. We will follow with an Open House from 12 Noon to 1 P.M. If you know of anyone interested in sending their child or children to our academy for the 2017-2018 school year, please let them know about the Open House.

On behalf of our Administration, Faculty and Staff, we wish all of you a blessed, healthy and prosperous New Year.

Yours truly
Mr. Ferguson
