Catholic Faith
Our Catholic values are integrated into all we do.  Religion is taught daily in all grade levels, and we attend mass as a school each Wednesday. Classes take turns leading us in the celebration of the mass.  We also have monthly prayer services, monthly all-school masses, sacrament preparation and participation, and ongoing service projects within our school, parish, and local and global communities.

Technology is integrated into the curriculum and a part of the children’s daily instruction. All classrooms have a desktop computer and iPad, and several classrooms are equipped with SmartBoards. A traveling laptop cart with 16 Google Chromebooks and 15 PC laptops is shared among classes, and all grades use the media room, equipped with 15 iMac computers. At St. Cyprian, technology is not a separate academic subject; it is a tool used to teach the general curriculum and connect students with varied educational resources.

We have a uniform policy at St. Cyprian School, which instills standards of cleanliness, neatness and good grooming in students. All students are required to wear a uniform, except for our prekindergarten students.

St. Cyprian teachers bring a great deal of experience and expertise to the classroom! The average teacher in our building has been at St. Cyprian for over 15 years and been teaching for even longer! Their dedication to the school and their students is inspiring.
