Thank you for your interest in Mater Dolorosa Catholic School.

The school community enjoyed a successful 2020-21 school year!  

Students’ hearts were evangelized by participating in Mass, going to confession, reciting the rosary, and praying throughout the school day.  In addition, middle school students participated in a mini-retreat which included Eucharistic Adoration and went to Our Daily Bread Food Bank to serve people in need.

Students and teachers increased the use of Google Classroom to enhance the educational program which now has a 1:1 student to laptop ratio for middle school students.

The players on this year’s basketball team improved as the season progressed thanks to the leadership of their coach.

As we embrace the future, students will be engaged in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) lessons and activities, and Algebra I and English I will be offered for high school credit.

We are looking forward to celebrating our school’s 100th year anniversary during this 2021-22 school year! 

Please call the school office if you have questions about our school.  We will be happy to answer your questions and schedule a tour to learn how we are accomplishing our mission to teach morals and values of the Catholic faith, instill strong leadership qualities, and promote academic growth and excellence.
