Faith is welcomed as an essential part of life. Persons of all faiths are welcomed and encouraged. Our diocesan school system students score above the national average in knowledge of the Catholic faith.
Small class sizes allow certified teachers to teach a quality and relevant curriculum, to discipline students with dignity, and to instill, model, and encourage literacy and cooperative skills. The one-on-one attention distinguishes our schools.
The goal of the Bright Futures Schools is to have all students, even with multiple disadvantages, perform at or above grade level on national standardized tests.
Despite impoverished circumstances and barriers to learning average daily attendance at Bright Futures Schools is 95% to 96% - ensuring access to daily instruction.
Safety and Well-being
Each child receives care and nurturing in a safe environment that educates the whole child -mind, spirit, and values.
Supportive and Collaborative
Parents are partners in education through active participation in school activities and parent-teacher conferences. Parents are accountable and pay a portion of their child’s tuition, participate in fundraising activities for the school, and volunteer.
Missouri Chapter of the National Federation of Non-Public Schools and AdvancED (NCA-CASI, the world’s premier school accreditation system for both public and private schools) dually accredit our schools.
We are one of only 30 U.S. diocesan districts to receive full accreditation from AdvancEd. Our Bright Futures Schools
