About St. Clement’s Parish School:

 

St. Clement's Parish School is the premier private school in El Paso, Texas for early childhood, elementary school, and middle school with research-informed, rigorous academics.  Within a nurturing Christian environment, the school promotes each child’s academic, spiritual, moral, artistic, physical and intellectual growth.

 

Established in 1958, St. Clement's Parish School serves approximately 300 students ranging in age from three-year-olds through eighth grade.  The school began as a mission of the Church of St. Clement and operates under the spiritual oversight of the Church.

 

St. Clement’s Parish School is the only school in El Paso accredited through the prestigious Independent Schools Association of the Southwest.  Standing on 60 years of academic distinction, the school offers students a solid foundation for lifelong learning and excellent preparation for high school and college.  All three divisions of the school emphasize not just academic excellence and faith, but also the importance of fine arts, athletics, physical education, the value of play, and a commitment to service outreach and outdoor education in order to develop well-rounded students.

 

Because of El Paso’s location along the border, St. Clement’s Parish School is uniquely positioned to have a diverse multi-national student body.  The school enrolls children from all over El Paso, nearby Fort Bliss, neighboring New Mexico, and Juarez, Mexico as well as overseas families who are in the region for work.
