About Us

The Catholic Faith Community

St. Catherine of Siena Catholic School is a faith community where we worship together and strive to live the teachings of Jesus in our relationships within the school and the community. Our daily actions are a reflection of having Jesus as the center of everything we plan and do.  As the parish school of St. Catherine of Siena Catholic Church, we benefit from the participation of the priests of the Community of the Beatitudes. We are blessed that they celebrate school liturgies with us, visit the classrooms regularly and are generally present for all our spiritual needs.

Students engage in daily prayer with their teachers. Each day begins with prayer and each student benefits from the inner focus that comes from prayer and the sense of community that comes from praying together. Daily prayer reminds us who we are and who we want to become in the world.  At every grade level, the faculty strives to make connections between religion and all subjects. In addition, religious instruction is an essential and required part of the curriculum.

Special liturgies and celebrations are planned throughout the year. The entire school body joyfully celebrates Halloween, All-Saints' Day, and Dia de los Muertos with costumes, events, and festivities; St. Nicholas has been known to visit us on the feast of St. Nicholas; the school leadership team (CATS) presents an emotionally moving 'living stations of the cross' during Lent; 8th graders proudly present a beautiful live tableau during Holy Week, as well as a traditional May crowning and living rosary; the regular prayer life and practice at St. Catherine's also includes opportunities to attend special masses for holy days and participate in private confessions twice each year.

Academics and a Catholic Education

The curriculum used at St. Catherine of Siena School is provided by the Archdiocese of Denver Office of Catholic Schools, an accredited school system in the United States through AdvancEd, which sets educational standards of excellence around the globe.
The standards and benchmarks of the Archdiocese of Denver Catholic Schools include and exceed those issued by the Colorado Department of Education for the public school systems of Colorado.  More info, including the curriculum of the Catholic Schools of the Archdiocese of Denver can be accessed at http://archden.org/schools/office-catholic-schools.

We believe Catholic education addresses the development of the whole person through spiritual and academic formation based on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We serve students from preschool - 8th grade and we have recently come under new leadership. The mission of Catholic education provides a particular environment for the New Evangelization by presenting the Gospel anew within the school and parish communities. We also teach our students the importance of serving those in need.

St. Catherine of Siena School, we strive to instill and cultivate a lifelong moral compass that transcends time through Catholic teaching, servant leadership, daily witness and loving example all in a safe, secure and nurturing environment.  The following are some highlights of our school:
  • St. Catherine of Siena students attend Mass every Tuesday and Friday.

  • First Eucharist and First Reconciliation preparation is done in second grade
  • Sacrament of Confirmation is currently received in eighth grade
