Pacelli Catholic Schools offer a top-tier education where students celebrate their Catholic faith as an integral part of their daily school experience. The strength and effectiveness of a PCS education rests on our commitment to excellence in academics, faith development, and co-curricular activities.  Together, these foundational pillars provide the support to develop well-rounded students who are formed in their faith, academically successful, and conscious  of their social responsibility on both a local and global level.

Pacelli  Catholic Schools commitment to preparing students to compete in a global economy is second to none.  Thanks to the generosity of  Sentry Insurance Foundation, our students participate in a 1:1 computing device program beginning in first grade.  PCS is strongly involved in STEM education, utilizing the nationally renowned Project Lead the Way program in grades K-12.  Cutting edge technology is available in all classrooms, and used directly in instruction of our students.

  • Religion and guidance are offered each year, and faith education is infused into all areas of student and academic life.   We believe that all of our students are called to be well-rounded people, to live a joyful and morally just life, and to become aware of the gifts that God has given them in order to contribute to their society, family, and workplace in meaningful and impactful ways throughout their adult lives.
  • Students consistently outperform local schools, state, and national averages on standardized tests.   We motivate our students to achieve at high levels, and we can afford to know them as a person and give them individualized instruction in order to help them realize their full scholastic potential.
  • Pacelli Catholic Schools provides a Learning Resources program to assist all students who face challenges academically.  Individualized instructional programs create an atmosphere where all students, even those with learning challenges, can thrive.
