St. Cecilia School is a member school of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Covington, Kentucky. The school serves the suburban community of Independence, Kentucky, which is located thirteen miles south of Cincinnati, Ohio. The mission of the school is: “To prepare the students for life by providing an engaging, high-quality education, guided by the teachings of the Catholic faith, where students live out the Gospel message of Jesus Christ.” The school’s motto is “Educating Minds, Nurturing Souls.” St. Cecilia School provides a safe, welcoming environment for students, teachers, and parents and strives to meet every student’s spiritual, academic, and social needs and goals.
When someone enters through the doors of St. Cecilia School, they immediately experience a welcoming sense of family and community. The principal welcomes each student every day in the parking lot, and teachers and staff greet the students as they enter their classrooms.
The curriculum is built to provide a solid foundation that will enable the students to be successful in the classroom and throughout their lives. St. Cecilia continuously updates technology to prepare students for success. Smartboards are used in every classroom and a 1:1 Chromebook initiative is in place. As part of the curriculum, the staff guides students to be followers of Christ. By developing a strong knowledge base, critical reasoning processes, and cooperative learning skills, students achieve high academic success and learn how to be contributing citizens both now and in the future.
St. Cecilia’s test scores have recently qualified the school to apply to become a National Blue Ribbon School! The school is also currently in the midst of a five million dollar addition that will provide a new gymnasium, media center, new classrooms, and a fitness center.
Our Open House is Wednesday, January 31st from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.
