Dear Web Visitor,

Welcome to St. Henry Catholic School.  St. Henry School has continuously served the people of Charleston and the surrounding communities for over one hundred years, beginning in September, 1888, with a one-room school located in the rectory [see history].  The school is open to all children in pre-school to grade eight who are willing to learn, regardless of race, creed, or national origin.  The family atmosphere of the school allows students from different faith communities and church backgrounds to find a comfortable home at St. Henry's.

Classrooms at St. Henry School are double-graded, allowing students to experience cooperative learning and peer tutoring in a Christian atmosphere, with a significantly high degree of attention from teachers.  All contracted teachers are fully degreed and state certified for the positions in which they serve.  The administrator holds a master's degree in elementary administration.

St. Henry School offers a twenty-unit computer lab, Accelerated Reading program, up-to-date curriculum, music classes, musical plays and programs, art classes, computer classes, physical education classes, boys and girls basketball teams, and a cheerleading squad.  In addition, our students are able to take advantage of numerous educational field trips, especially in our upper grades.

Thank you for visiting St. Henry School's web site! If you would like further information regarding our school please feel free to call our school office at 573-683-6218.  St. Henry's will continue to strive to provide a quality education in a Christian atmosphere for the children of our community.  We invite you to be a part of our school family.

Sincerely yours,

Michael Eftink, Principal

Be it known to all who enter here that Christ is the reason for this school, the unseen but ever present teacher in its classes, the model of its faculty, the inspiration of its students.
