*St. Helen Catholic School Mission Statement*

 

     St. Helen Catholic School is committed to educating the whole person to see with Christ’s eyes.


*St. Helen Catholic School Philosophy*

 

     St. Helen Catholic School is dedicated to serving the diverse community of Georgetown and the Diocese of Austin. It is our goal to nurture the whole child with a program of academic excellence in a Catholic environment. We believe that parents and guardians are the primary educators of their children and that it is the responsibility of the Catholic Community of Saint Helen to assist in this endeavor. The family, the school, and the parish community work together modeling, mentoring, and instructing our children to develop into compassionate, intelligent, and responsible citizens.
