Dear Parents,

Thank you for choosing St. Vincent de paul School for your child's education. I know that you will be both impressed and pleased with the academic and spiritual formation that your child will experience at our school. 

St. Vincent de Paul offers instruction for grades K through 8, and operates under the auspices of the St. Vincent de Paul Church within the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend, Indiana. St. Vincent de Paul was established in 1956 and eventually expanded to serve the growing educational and spiritual needs of the parish. Today, the school serves a student population of approximately 750 students.

The school's mission is to empower all students to live and share their Catholic faith while growing in  academic success in a safe and nurturing environment. The school community is an integral part of the Catholic Church's mission to proclaim the gospel, build faith communities, offer service to others and celebrate through worship. The school's Catholic identity is strengthened by an integrated curriculum rooted in Gospel values and Catholic teachings. A positive school climate is established through the creation of a Christian enviroment that actively involves students, teachers, parents and community members in recognizing and respecting individual differences. The St. Vincent de Paul curriculum is developed in conjunction with ACE Notre Dame. Classes in math, social studies, science, language arts and foreign language are aligned with state standards with an emphasis on the development of higher level thinking skills and techniques for problem solving. All students participate in "specials", classes that include fine arts, music, physical education and computer instruction. Daily religion classes and the celebration of Mass twice a week contribute to the spiritual formation of each child and the building of our Community in Christ, our school's vision.

Please feel free to contact us if we can assist you in any way. We are honored that you are trusting your child's educational and spiritual formation to us and we anxiously look forward to welcoming your child and family into our community. 

With God's Blessing, 

Cheryl Klinker
