Our School Mission

St. Gerard Majella Catholic School in Kirkwood, MORooted in Faith, Grounded in Excellence, Prepared for Success!

St. Gerard Majella School is a place where the promise and potential of every child begins to be realized. The basis of our philosophy is our commitment to educating the whole child while recognizing each child's individuality. In a warm and nurturing environment, faith is strengthened, academic skills are developed, and friendships are formed. Working in partnership with the entire parish community, we prepare students to meet future faith and academic challenges and responsibilities. We believe that respect for self and others is the key to positive self-esteem. We believe that the development of the whole child is best nurtured when there is positive interaction among the home, school, and community.
