It is my privilege to welcome you to our Saint Bridget School website!
It is that time of year again when we are looking to consider what school best fits our children and their needs. I hope and pray you will consider our own Saint Bridget School for your child’s education!
Come for a visit and you will see firsthand what makes Saint Bridget School stand out from all the rest. Since the early days of my priesthood I have been involved in Catholic schools in one way or another and have witnessed firsthand that there is something about Catholic schools that sets them apart.
The particular advantage enjoyed by our Catholic schools, over any other school system, is their ability to teach the faith on a daily basis, alongside the other subjects that make up the school curriculum. Religion is taught with the same rigor that one would expect to find in a Math, Science, English or History class. Moreover, the faith is integrated into every aspect of the school day; not only in classroom work, but in extracurricular activities, character formation, and certainly in the spiritual life which is central to Catholic schools.
Even parents who have children in our school are still amazed and awed by the nurturing and caring environment they witness when they come for activities in the school. I have heard it from parents with children in our Pre-K program who come in for a visit to things like the Donuts with Dad event, from parents of our middle school students who have chaperoned field trips, from the parent of a new student joining us mid-year, and from the parent with a child dealing with some growing pains who came in to be with their child. These parents come into the school during the school day and observe the dedication of our extraordinary faculty and the caring of fellow students for one another. The “family atmosphere” that is provided in our school is beyond compare. Come and witness it yourself!
Yes indeed! THAT IS PRECISELY WHAT MAKES CATHOLIC SCHOOLS, AND OUR CATHOLIC SCHOOL, SO SUCCESSFUL. WE ARE A FAMILY. We are a family of faith, where the students are part of a larger school family; where they are taught the importance of caring for one another, showing respect for one another, and where they are taught to live out Jesus’ command to “love one another as I have loved you.”
TODAY I invite all families from our parishes, and from the surrounding towns, with school age children (PreK3-Grade8) to come to Saint Bridget School and see this firsthand. I want all families to know that Saint Bridget School is an option for YOU. Please contact Christina Cummings in our Admissions Office to schedule a visit!
Asking God’s choicest blessings upon you and your family, I remain,
