As parents, we want the best for our children. We want them to be prepared for life's challenges and to reach their goals and aspirations. Part of this preparation is a solid education.
St. Charles educational program is based on a firm foundation of religious beliefs, core values, high standards and a positive work ethic. This foundation enables children to grow in their understanding of themselves, their relationship with God and with others.
St Charles Catholic School promotes the education of the whole child, spiritual, social, emotional, physical and academic performance allowing students the opportunity to reach their potential. Our teachers are well trained, and encourage real learning experiences that promote exploration, student achievement, and interpersonal skills that fosters a respectful relationship when working with others.
St Charles Catholic School offers a community environment in which children can discuss and live out the values upon which their education is based. Students are encouraged to contribute to society and to assume leadership roles in shaping public attitudes and programs. In Catholic schools, young people learn to question, to establish confidence in their own good choices in life and to experience the sense of accomplishment stemming from individual achievement and responsibility.
As parents you can be assured that your child will receive a strong academic education in an environment structured to have lasting value and to provide the foundation for a successful future.

The ability to learn is one of God's greatest gifts and, through outstanding educational achievements, students at St Charles glorify Him. Expectations are high, but a supportive and nurturing environment, characterized by mutual respect and the word of God, enables students to meet them. Here, exceptional students are challenged to their capacity, and all students can achieve extraordinary things.
At St Charles our curricular approach centers on classic works that have stood the test of time. Through exposure to such works and the deep insights they bring, students grow to value things of worth and to love learning for its own sake.
Catholic / Christian worldview integration is more than daily prayers and Bible studies. In addition to Bible classes and weekly Mass, our teachers understand that all truth is God truth. They expose Truth by encouraging vigorous discussion within a Catholic / Christian context, intricately woven into all areas of the curriculum.
INDIVIDUAL APPROACH -
Reasonable class sizes allow teachers to provide personal attention, which helps each student rise to the academic challenges of our curriculum. Outstanding faculty select from multiple primary sources and various publishers and curricula to build a unique and rigorous academic program.
Above all, our curriculum and teaching methods are purposeful and intentional. We map our curriculum from grades Pre School - 8th grade, building the foundation from year to year. Questioning in harmony with Tradition is essential in a Catholic education, and every element of our curriculum is continually analyzed, challenged and defended. Through this process we remain a leader in Catholic / Christian education in the Spokane area.
