St. Barbara Catholic School is a vibrant, diverse and faith-filled community focused on providing a strong education to our students.  Our Catholic beliefs are found in every aspect of our school life, and our love for Christ is at the center of everything we do.

While we understand the state of the church locally and throughout the world, we strongly disagree with the Archdiocese’s decision to close our school and have it absorbed by another school.  We are asking that St. Barbara continue as is. St. Barbara School has a very strong faculty and staff, and our current leadership is dedicated to the success of our students.  We also do not rely on financial support from the Archdiocese.

We strongly believe that our marketing efforts are starting to take hold - this year the school enrolled a record number 38 students. As St. Barbara family and friends, we will continue to do our part to be ambassadors for our school. 

After the departure of our longtime principal several years ago, we went through a difficult period of transition but now feel that our school is prospering.  We urge the Archdiocese to reconsider this decision so that our unique school community can continue to evangelize the love of Christ. Through this evangelization, we will do our part to encourage vocations to the priesthood and religious life, and to build the future of the church.
