About Our School


Come and see the exciting things going on at St. Ferdinand

Catholic education at St. Ferdinand's is an expression of the teaching ministry of the church, organized to promote human development in response to the Gospel.  It fosters growth in all individual and social dimensions:  spiritual, moral, intellectual, emotional, physical and aesthetic through a ministry embracing a message of faith taught and lived in community and reaching out in service to others.
The school consists of grades Preschool through Eighth with a faculty of 17 (one of these being Religious).  Courses offered other than regular basic curriculum are:  Computer, Music, Art, Physical Education, and Resource.  Our facilities consist of air-conditioned classrooms, Library, Computer Lab, Google Chromebook Carts,  Fully Networked Campus, Promethean Interactive Boards, Gym, Cafeteria, and computers in classrooms.
Pre-School offers a hands-on approach to early childhood education that is rooted in Gospel Values.  Our students participate in a variety of fun-filled activities and are guided on their educational journey by a qualified early childhood educator.  Beyond their regular program the students have Computer, Music, Art, and Physical Education once a week.  Our program has two components allowing us to meet the varying needs of the children at each age level:
  •  We offer a full day Preschool.   Along with the full day parents will have the option of half days, full or half day Monday, Wednesday, Friday, or full or half day Tuesday and Thursday.  For more Information check the parent resource page.
