St. Cletus School

St. Charles, MO
St. Cletus School Building

I would like to welcome you to St. Cletus School! We are accredited by the Missouri Chapter of the National Federation of Non-Public School State Accreditation Association. We are committed to the development of the whole child, and believe that the parents are the primary educators of their children.

Message, Community, Worship and Service are meaningful words at St. Cletus. We unite in worship in the celebration of the Eucharist and live out the Gospel message. We work together as a community who support one another, while also stressing the need to reach out in service to others. We offer the students an atmosphere of love and respect based on the teachings of Jesus Christ, and a solid curriculum taught by dedicated qualified faculty.

We currently operate on an extended calendar which provides great benefits to our children’s academic career. We begin school in early August and end during the first week of June. This schedule allows us to take two two-week intersessions; one in the fall and one in the spring. Summer retention loss is held to a minimum and the intersessions have allowed the children to return to school refreshed and more focused.

Information regarding registration and tours may be obtained by contacting the school office at (636) 946-7756. I look forward to meeting with you.
