Why St. Helen?

Welcome to St. Helen Catholic School!

All of our staff are worthy of awards…please get to know them and St. Helen Catholic School! We are dually accredited by the TCCBED (Texas Catholic Conference of Bishops Education Department) and AdvancED (formerly Southern Association of Schools).

We, the community of St. Helen Catholic School, firmly believe that learning is a life-long process to be nurtured and sustained at all levels. At the heart of the educational process is the faith formation of all persons, especially our students, through the personal commitment of each staff member and an academic program centered on Christian values.

Our students know that we have high expectations for them, and they strive to meet them. We welcome involvement from parents and the community as together, we ensure our school maintains our Catholic identity. Our continued mission is to grow children in “Wisdom, Age, Grace” or WAG!
