Why St. William School?
Focus on Language
Acquisition and Fluency
We create individual reading plans for every student.
At St. William we know how important reading and writing is for young minds. Being able to express thoughts and feelings allows for effective communication and a better sense of understanding and acceptance.
It is because of this approach that every one of our students achieved more than a grade level of growth in reading last year.
Program in All
Every student has individual access
to a Chromebook or iPad at all times.
We live in a world that incorporates
technology into every facet. Being able to use technology effectively and responsibly gives St. William students an advantage as they continue through their school career and beyond.
at the Forefront
Extra measures are being taken this year to
make sure students stay safe.
We know that children being able to learn in the
classroom environment provides the best growth and
understanding, both within subject areas, but also socially
with their peers. By helping children understand the safety
measures like wearing masks and frequent hand washing - and enforcing them - as well as following other cleaning procedures
in the building, students will feel safe and comfortable in their environment, and allow them to settle into a routine.
We maintain a low student-to-teacher ratio.
With this approach our teachers can more readily assist students with questions about the material being covered in the class. It also allows for a more collaborative environment and a closer school community.
At St. William School we believe that every child has the ability to achieve their goals. We build a foundation through education that makes their goals possible.

"GROWING SPIRITUALLY IS EQUALLY AS IMPORTANT TO GROWING INTELLECTUALLY."
A Spiritual Life
For everyone at St. William School, growing spiritually is equally important to growing intellectually. Our students learn what it means to be Catholic. The St. William faculty provides fertile soil in which our students’ faith can grow fruitful and strong. Through word and deed, our students learn and live the Gospel.
A Prayerful Life
At St. William School, every day begins with prayer. Praying the “Our Father” and “Hail Mary,” while essential, only introduces St. William students to praising, thanking, and petitioning God. Through our students’ written and oral lessons, they learn to talk to God like a friend, and cherish the comfort that comes from talking with the Lord.
A Sacramental Life
The teachers and priests of St. William prepare our students to receive the sacraments. More than a milestone, our students understand how God’s grace flows through the sacraments and enriches their lives and the life of every Catholic. With this assuring knowledge, St. William students learn how to rely on this sacramental strength all through their lives.
A Reverent Life
Once a week, and for the holidays, our students and faculty gather together in St. William Church to celebrate Mass, and everyone is involved. We have a student choir that guides the congregation in the musical parts of the Mass. Our grades take turns organizing the Masses. As a result, not only do our students learn the order of the Catholic Mass, all of our students have the opportunity read aloud Scripture readings to the congregation. Whether it be singing, praying, or reading St. William students fully engage in worshiping God.
