Saint Matthew Catholic School (a ministry of Saint Matthew Catholic Church) is dedicated to providing a faith-filled Catholic education from preschool to 8th grade that fosters the growth of the whole child. Through developmentally appropriate academics, we facilitate social growth in a safe environment and inspire self-discipline, personal responsibility, and a concern for others in the world.
Saint Matthew Catholic School holds as its vision for all students and staff to embody “The Warrior Way.” This widely distributed and highly visible statement encompasses everything from our commitment to being a truly Catholic school devoted to God in the model of Jesus as well as developing the strengths of each person in collaborative ways in an enjoyable environment.
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.
Our Catholic identity comes first and foremost, as best seen through our Pastor, Fr. Nick Dant, who is very supportive of our school’s mission of providing a quality Catholic education from preschool to grade 8. We also offer the following:
