Vision and mission

St. Columba School exists to provide a Christ-centered environment wherein quality education helps each child grow in faith, knowledge, service and love of God.

We at Saint Columba School recognize the worth and dignity of each individual as a child of God. Through daily examples of words and actions, we strive to guide all students to their fullest potential and to promote an atmosphere that encourages each child to grow spiritually, intellectually, socially, emotionally, and physically.

St. Columba School is accredited by the AdvancED Accreditation Commission, the NCA Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement, the Northwest Accreditation Commission, and the SACS Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement.

A Strong Growth Mindset

The staff works with parent/guardians to build a solid foundation of Christian moral values, self-confidence, self-discipline and self-worth that will remain in each child throughout adult life.

Researched Instruction

Our educational programs consist of carefully planned, well executed curriculum practices. We utilize standards-based curriculum mapping, solid instructional pedagogy, and appropriate assessment based on research and best practices.

A Community of Learners

St. Columba School is built on respect and responsibility. Our staff, students, and parents/guardians work closely together to facilitate a close-knit community unlike any other.

Universally Accessible

We recognize that every individual child has the ability to excel and to succeed.  Effective policies and practices are in place along with instructional materials, technology and equipment, which are age-appropriate, functional, and well maintained.
