We measure our success in actual lives enriched, a testament to the difference that Catholic schools can make when we come together to create lasting change.

At St. Edward Catholic School your child receives an

education that is grounded in the Roman Catholic faith.

Spiritual and moral development permeates the entire

curriculum at St. Edward. Many non-Catholic families also

benefit from the fruits of an education that focuses on the

total student: body, mind, and soul.

Catholic schools are renowned for academic excellence. Students in

Catholic schools consistently score in the top 1/3 on nationally

standardized tests. Iowa Basic Skills test scores of St. Edward

students are consistent with these national scores.

St. Edward School is committed to the philosophy that

every student matters. Every effort is made to work

with students who need remedial assistance.

Academically gifted students are challenged within

individualized programs that meet their level of learning.

Students are encouraged to work at their personal best

each day. Diversity is celebrated in every classroom, and

students who may be struggling are offered a variety of

help from teachers, other students, and support staff.

Our faculty guides students with firmness, yet kindness

and love. Because our classes are so small in size, faculty

and staff are able to create greater relationships with

their students that last well past their graduation

from our school.

St. Edward students model their dedication to community

service each and everyday. Students enjoy helping others

in their community. Each school year classes at St. Edward

Catholic School choose service projects to participate in

throughout their community. Students also make cards for

area shut-ins and the 5th through 8th grade classes attend

mass monthly at Heritage Health, the local nursing home in

Chillicothe, IL. Throughout the year students also

participate in various activities to support charities,

including St. Jude Children Research, Relay for Life, and

Juvenile Diabetes.
