About Our School
ST. CLARE OF ASSISI CATHOLIC SCHOOL MISSION STATEMENT
Love God, Serve God; Everything is in That!
The mission of St. Clare of Assisi Catholic School is to provide a Catholic education that forms the mind through the Holy Spirit.
St. Clare of Assisi Catholic Church is united in faith through a love that is strengthened by a belief in the teaching of Jesus Christ. St. Clare of Assisi Catholic School, as a part of the church, is a demonstration of the community’s Christian fellowship. We, the school community, have committed ourselves to share our knowledge and faith within an education program that will allow every child to develop intellectually, spiritually, physically, psychologically, and emotionally. The program is structured in a way that challenges and nurtures students so that St. Clare of Assisi Catholic School maintains the highest academic standards.
Located in the heart of Clear Lake, St. Clare of Assisi Catholic School was first opened in the fall of 1995. We currently offer classes for full day Preschool 3 & 4 (must be potty trained) through the eighth grade. We accept no more than 12 students in PK3, no more than 15 students in PK4, and no more than 18 students in Kindergarten. School hours for all grades are from 8:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Our students are required to wear school uniforms.
Students in PK and Kindergarten receive instruction in all the core subjects in addition to Religion, Music, PE/Health and Library. PK and Kindergarten are both taught in a traditional manner, as well as Montessori integrated into the traditional approach. Students in first through eighth grade receive instruction in all the core subjects in addition to Religion, Spanish, Computer, Music, PE/Health, Theatre, Art and Library. Computers are available in each classroom and in the Computer Lab. Before and after school care is available. St. Clare is the first and only Catholic middle school in Clear Lake.
The Home and School Association offers an optional five days a week hot lunch program for an additional fee. All students who do not participate in the hot lunch program need to bring a lunch to school every day. They generally eat lunch in the Social Hall or (weather permitting) in the outdoor lunch area. Families are invited to join students at lunch time as well as for Star breakfasts (held on a scheduled basis).
All of our teachers are experienced, degreed and qualified. We are fully accredited through the Texas Catholic Conference Education Department (TCCEA), which is recognized by the Texas Educational Agency (TEA). We are under the supervision of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston Catholic School Office. Our Superintendent is Sister Kevina Keating, our Principal is Dr. Al Varisco, and our Pastor is Father Vincent Nguyen.
Applications are available upon request. There is no charge to apply. You will receive notification from the school office when an opening is available and instructions on how to complete the registration process. We thank you for your interest in St. Clare of Assisi Catholic School and look forward to working with you to provide an excellent Catholic education for your child.
