Our Mission

Keeping Christ In Our Mind, Body, And Hearts

St. Vincent de Paul Parish School is an amazing community. We are dedicated to inspiring a love for learning and empowering students to reach their potential in spiritual growth, academic achievement, creativity and citizenship. Our priority is to keep Christ in our mind, body, and heart in all that we do. Our students receive opportunities and experiences which develop their skills and talents to solve real-world problems. As a state STEM designated school in the Diocese of Cleveland, we integrate the research-based best practice of problem-based learning in the curriculum. We partner with community groups and businesses to help bring awareness to their cause and solve problems they may have within their organizations. Past partnerships have included The Akron Zoo, St. Vincent-St. Mary High School, Hattie Larlham, Wastebits, Cleveland Water Alliance, and St. Bernard Parish. At St. Vincent de Paul Parish School we believe children learn best in a positive faith-filled environment with guidance from teachers who genuinely care for all students and their success. We strive to promote a sense of community that encourages each child and family to feel welcomed and valued. We believe it is our responsibility to help learners become good citizens with a sense of understanding for others in the school community and throughout our world. The enrollment for the 2018-2019 school year in grades preschool through eighth grade is 205. All employees and volunteers who have contact with students undergo thorough screening, including background checks through the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation & Identification (BCI & I). For complete information on screening policies, see revised Policy for the Safety of Children in Matters of Sexual Abuse, section 1.2 (p. 3).


The mission of St. Vincent de Paul Parish School is to develop young Catholic men and women with creative minds, a sense of understanding for one another, and the ability to change the world while keeping Christ in the mind, body, and heart.
