Ss. Colman-John Neumann School is a Catholic elementary school (kindergarten through eighth grade) proclaiming the message of Jesus Christ. The school is rooted in Scripture and makes prayer an integral part of its daily life. Ss. Colman-John Neumann School seeks to educate the whole person through its strong academic program and to enrich the total person through co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. The school community serves not only the parishioners by educating the children in Catholic doctrine and tradition, but also serves the wider community by giving witness to Gospel values in everyday life. A quality Catholic education leading to a life of service in the Church and community defines Ss. Colman- John Neumann School.
Our community is one in which the students and faculty work together to experience God in our midst. While the religious nature of our school is paramount, academics is also a key element. We follow the curriculum designed by the Office of Catholic Education, and we provide many programs to meet the needs of our students. Given the high academic potential of our school population, the students are presented with a challenging curriculum. The faculty provides our students with a solid education by using methods of instruction that are geared toward the physical and intellectual stage of development of their students.
While showing respect toward each student, the faculty models the way in which students can become responsible members of the Church and our democratic society. Our students see our faculty members interact in a Christian spirit of faith, hope, and charity. Students are encouraged to respect themselves, one another, the faculty, and the staff as gifts from God.
There is a collegial nature to the interactions between the administration and the faculty. The
pastor of Saint John Neumann Parish, who is the school administrator, determines school policy
along with the principal. Teachers are invited to have input when policy is updated. Our
teachers are selected because of their Catholic Christian values, professionalism, and collegiality. These are factors that have been key to the success of our school in providing a quality Catholic education.
