About Us

About St. Ivo School

St. Ivo School embodies the teachings, values and beliefs of the Catholic Church. We serve our mission by providing a compassionate, nurturing atmosphere in which students develop a solid moral character, realize their fullest potential and share their gifts with others. All that we do is rooted in love, the teachings of Jesus Christ, prayer and Eucharistic celebrations.

St. Ivo School recognizes that parents have the primary responsibility to educate their children. In partnership with them and the larger St. Ivo community, the faculty and staff endeavor to develop all students’ spiritual, academic, social, emotional, and physical potential. Students emerge from St. Ivo Elementary School well prepared for their next step as active Catholics and contributing members of their community.
