Faith In Our Future

A Campaign for St. Ignatius Catholic School at Holy Apostles

The history of St. Ignatius Catholic School is the long journey of a dedicated community united by the bonds of faith—faith in God, faith our Church and faith in our school.  Holy Apostles Church has united to create a school committed to academic excellence and anchored in Catholic faith and values. Our community is committed to creating a child centered learning environment that celebrates each child’s individuality while fostering excellence in the arts, academics and athletics.
