"St. Helen school is a worthwhile investment in our children’s education and well being, offering smaller class sizes where the students feel cherished and are all known by name. Not only does St. Helens meet our children’s academic needs, it provides opportunities for social growth through a variety of extra curricular activities such as sports, clubs, and band. St. Helens also offers unique events and activities that set them apart, including a Christmas dinner, Halloween party, family movie nights, field day, Science Olympiad, DARE, spirit and service, and participation in the weekly masses. These instill school pride and create a strong sense of community. St. Helen school has helped our children grow academically, socially, and spiritually. We are grateful to be a part of such a wonderful school family."
St. Helen School has taught me discipline. My academic success has come from St. Helen's directing me towards my passions. Not only my academic passions, but my athletic, musical, and extra curricular interests as well. My favorite memories involve all of my teachers. St. Helen's has always had a very professional staff. They inspired me to be my best self. As a student at St. Helen's, I always looked up to my teachers as role models. The Catholic education has taught me important Catholic doctrines that I uphold every single day. For example, the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy is something that I strive to practice everyday as a student at Ursuline College.
"My teachers at Saint Helen School helped me to pursue knowledge, challenge myself as a servant leader, and to discover the world around me through the lens of faith. No matter the challenges of high school, college, and beyond, I have been able to take these lessons with me every step of the way. From crossing my fingers for a snow day, to participating in the science fair, thinking about my time at St. Helen always brings back fond memories! I am happy to see that this legacy is continuing - to me, Saint Helen offers the most well-rounded education available in Geauga County."
"My favorite thing about attending St. Helen School is the people who are attending it with me. My friends are so funny and they all make my day so much better. When I shadowed here a whole group of people came and welcomed me as if they had known me for years and today they are the same exact way. They are all amazing people. The teachers are also great. They all help you and if you have a question they will explain it one-on-one and continue to reinforce that topic which I think is really great."
A Catholic education has always been a priority in raising our children. Children spend a lot of time in school and I want them to be in a school surrounded by Christ like actions. St. Helen School teachers and staff genuinely care about the students. I love seeing how my children have grown spiritually and academically over the years. Fr. Jay is so passionate about his love for Christ and you can see and hear in his voice how much he loves the students at St. Helen and wants nothing but the best for them.
