We Are Unique

WHAT WE OFFER

Active play provides more than exercise.
It stimulates the mind, engages the imagination, sparks socialization, and develops emotional and physical skills. That’s why St. Columba’s provides dynamic and diverse playgrounds and classrooms that inspire children to explore ideas through play, and it’s why we prioritize time outdoors, enabling our students to learn through discovery.

Our Students

A RIGHT FIT FOR YOUR CHILD

At St. Columba’s, we recognize that each child is a masterpiece with unlimited potential and capacity. We take great care to foster their individuality, providing both personalized attention and the ultimate environment to grow and develop at their own pace. Our teachers nurture, guide, and encourage our students to learn in a way that meets their specific needs and personalities.

Admission

WHAT IS OUR PROCESS

Testing does not always determine potential, which is one reason why St. Columba’s does not require testing prior to admission. Recognizing that every child brings value, our admissions process does not require interviews of either parents or children. Instead, we invite you to attend our Talk & Tour, where we can get to know you and your child in an engaging and natural environment and ensure our program meets their needs.

Our Families

EVERYONE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Our families come from throughout the Metro area and represent a resplendent variety of heritage, faith traditions, and composition. Like our children, we believe that families deserve a school home that welcomes and includes them in every facet of school life, and which actively promotes friendship and collaboration with each other and the school staff.
