Principal's Welcome

Welcome to St. Maria Goretti Catholic School

On behalf of our faculty and staff, I would like to welcome you to our school. St. Maria Goretti is a Catholic elementary school for students in preschool through eighth grade which is rooted in faith and committed to academic excellence and service to the community.

As a ministry of St. Maria Goretti Parish, we adhere to our parish mission to grow in faith and love to be in union with Jesus Christ and one another. We accomplish this mission through incorporating God into all academic areas, by instilling a strong life of prayer and worship through Mass attendance and visits to Adoration, and by providing service opportunities to teach our students to love their neighbors as themselves.

We believe that each child comes to us with unique God-given talents, and we strive to develop those gifts in a nurturing and caring atmosphere. We hold high academic standards throughout our school. Our preschool program offers a well-balanced approach for our youngest learners. We provide opportunities for students to become well rounded young people through participation in fine arts, athletics, and a variety of extracurricular activities. Our graduates are able to attend the high school of their choice and are well-prepared to succeed at the next level.

We recognize that parents are the primary educators of their children and strive to partner with parents continually. It is this bond between home and school that allows us to work closely together in all aspects of school life with the students at the center of these efforts. Our dedicated, highly qualified faculty and staff provide stimulating learning experiences, while challenging students to grow spiritually, academically, and emotionally and preparing each student for a lifetime of success.

I invite you to continue to look through our website and to visit our Facebook page, to learn more about our dynamic school community. To begin your journey with St. Maria Goretti Catholic School, I invited you to submit the School Inquiry Form to request a tour or receive more information.

If you have any additional questions, please contact the school office at 608-271-7551 or We look forward to hearing from you and answering any questions you have. Please know that we are here to walk with you and your family.

God bless you,

Bob Schell
