Mission

Blessed Sacrament Catholic School supports the Catholic Church in spreading the Gospel values of Jesus Christ. We view parents as the child’s primary educators in partnership with teachers servings as the facilitators for learning. Together, we strive to nurture the whole child spiritually, academically, emotionally, and socially in a loving environment.

Vision

Blessed Sacrament Catholic School is our school of choice because of its faith formation, academic excellence, vibrant community, and strength of character education.

History

Blessed Sacrament School opened its doors in 1986.  With the direction and dedication of two Dominican sisters, Sr. Barbara Stanek, O.P., and Sr. Sharon Carroll, O.P., along with Monsignor Robert Servatius, and the Blessed Sacrament Parish Community.  Blessed Sacrament School began teaching Kindergarten and 1st grade classes in the parish hall.  The following year, Pre-K and 2nd grade classes were added.

Groundbreaking for the school was observed in June 1987.  Then, in September 1988, our four classroom education center and a main office were dedicated, completing building Phase I. In 1990, Phase II was completed and we moved our Pre-K and Kindergarten classrooms into the main school house.  In 1991, Phase III completed our ten classroom school.  Adding one new grade each year, we filled our blessed school and celebrated our first 8th grade graduating class in 1994. The final building phase, Phase IV, began in 1995. This phase included a gymnasium, kitchen, Library and Media Center, and a center for our Little Blessings Extended Day Program.  Phase IV was dedicated in April of 1996. As an addition to our Library, the Learning Resource Center was completed in January of 1999. In 2009, the monumental accomplishment of completing our Center for Science and the Arts was realized by the generosity of the ALSAM and the E.L. Wiegand Foundations.
