St. Brendan School is dedicated to educating children in a Catholic community where spirituality is fostered, uniqueness is valued and potential is realized.
St. Brendan’s is an inclusive school with a commitment to educating all children, including those with special needs as well as identifying and addressing the learning styles of all students. A challenging and comprehensive curriculum grounded in the principles of Catholic faith allows each student to excel academically and spiritually. St. Brendan students are given unique educational experiences “beyond the classroom” such as an annual Research Fair, a comprehensive art and music program, work on the school newspaper (The Dolphin Dispatch), enrichment class opportunities after school and a trip to Philadelphia and Gettysburg in the 8th grade.
St. Brendan School offers an in-depth study of Catholicism, student liturgies and daily prayer, sacramental preparation, service learning, and a challenging curriculum aligned with Diocesan and State of Ohio standards. Our students perform exceptionally well on national standardized tests.
Students enjoy enrichment activities including Junior and Senior Spelling Bees, a Geography Bee, the Ready Academic Bowl, Youth-to-Youth, Scouting, Artist in the Schools, instrumental band instruction, Math Counts and In-The-Know regional academic competitions, Power of the Pen, Power of the Pencil for 5th and 6th Grades, Shoebox Science, the Invention Convention, a student newspaper, and many other volunteer and service opportunities.
The school prides itself on its fully-credentialed faculty, state-of-the-art computer lab, extensive and growing media center, recent curriculum enhancements with increased emphasis on “hands-on” math and writing.
Close ties between home and school are the heart of St. Brendan’s success. Parent volunteer hours exceed well over 20,000 hours. A very successful dinner with live and silent auction provides additional funds to enable the school to enhance classroom learning and to offer facilities improvements . Our dedicated and active parent community makes this happen.
