Welcome to Saint Matthew Catholic School
“We chose St. Matthew for its loving and nurturing Kindergarten environment eight short years ago. Little did we know that nurturing environment remains and inspiring teachers continue each year to prepare for high school.” – – – Mark and Pam Fox, Parents of a 5th and 7th Grader

We are proud to be a Catholic School accredited by the Archdiocese of Indianapolis and the State of Indiana through the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

- Attend weekly all-school Masses
- Masses planned by classes with full student participation
- Opportunity for Reconciliation with Fr. Nick
- Participation in Sacraments in conjunction with the St. Matthew Parish Faith Formation program
- Stations of the Cross
- Last Supper re-enactment
