St. Wendelin Catholic School

Our outstanding academic program is guided by exceptional courses of study. These reflect the latest in educational research and ‘best’ educational practice, as well as our highly qualified faculty and administration’s collective commitment to students and their parents. SWCS students succeed because of high expectations, a rigorous curriculum and discipline, all rooted in and shaped by Gospel values. Opportunities are given to students each year to volunteer for a variety of ministries that serve the pastoral and liturgical needs of the student body and parish so that they may develop a deep and lasting commitment to their faith.
