Exceeding Expectations
and ACHIEVING RESULTS

Nothing is More Important than Your Child’s Education

At St. Wenceslaus we strive to create an environment of academic excellence for your child. We highly value the important skills of creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, and communication that are essential in preparing our children to become the leaders of tomorrow.

“Sending our child to St. Wenceslaus was the best thing we ever did. As a new parent, they did everything they could to make us and our child feel special and welcome. It really is like joining a family. What sold us was the school’s principles of academic excellence, while focusing on the child as whole. I love that they help raise thoughtful, compassionate, young adults. Our child loves it here.”
