Message from our Head of School

Choosing the educational future of your child is one of the most important decisions you will ever make.


Parents trust us daily not only to educate and mold the mind of their child but also to create in them a passion for learning and achievement that extends beyond the classroom. Whether it’s on an athletic field, singing in the chorus or nurturing their budding faith, educating the whole child is our focus at St. Clements Parish School.


Our School Mission at St. Clement’s states that “Within a nurturing Christian environment, St. Clement’s Parish School promotes each child’s academic, spiritual, moral, artistic, physical, and intellectual growth.” Founded in 1958, the school began with six faculty members, two kindergarten classes, and one section each of first, second, and third grade. Today the school offers research-based, active learning programs for Three-year olds through eighth graders, still grounded in our mission and devoted to “building a lasting foundation for the future” in all of our students.


St. Clement’s School is accredited by the Independent Schools Association of the Southwest (ISAS) and the Texas Education Agency through the Texas Private School Accrediting Commission (TEPSAC). During the 1996-1997 school year, St. Clement’s was named a National Blue Ribbon School.


We understand the importance of educating children from a variety of backgrounds and helping them identify their strengths and grow their passions. We aim to instill a drive in our students to set high standards for themselves and then put them into positions to excel and surpass their own expectations.


As a faculty, we work to create a love for learning from the moment a student steps onto our campus, so that they approach their education with excitement and passion. As our students’ grow, we strive to help them learn to love Christ and all of God’s children, living out the essence of their faith. Finally, we want to equip our students with a mindset of living to serve, so that they step off our campus and into the world as servant leaders.


As you read through our website, envision the educational future of your child. If you’d like to learn more about St. Clement’s and the successes it provides to its student in and out of the classroom, I invite you to visit our campus, within which you will quickly feel the embrace of a loving and nurturing community.
