Hello and welcome to the St. Athanasius School Website. St. Athanasius is a Catholic elementary school that opened its doors in 1960. We are located in the Highview area near Fern Creek. We are the home of the Hornets. We introduce a child to the life-long learning process with our 4-year-old, pre-kindergarten program. This program is a safe, structured, and fun atmosphere to spark interest, teach life skills, and inspire faith.From there, children can continue growing and becoming part of our faith based community in grades kindergarten through eighth grade. Many of our graduates continue to support our parish and school. We have truly been a part of their lives from Baptism through Confirmation.
Currently our school teaches close to 400 students and has a teaching staff of 25, not to mention our instructional assistants, resource teacher, and counselor. Most of our teachers hold a Master’s Degree. While the school and teachers provide the tools and instruction to help the students achieve, we cannot do it without parental involvement and support. A child’s success at school depends on all of us in this community. Each family is given a handbook, which provides practical information as well as policies and guidelines for the governance of our school. Parents are urged to read the handbook and discuss it with their child.
Our school’s events are consistently updated on our webpage so that parents always know what opportunities are available to their child-whether it is sacramental, educational, athletic, or fundraising you will be able to find out what you need to know.If you have suggestions for our website or if you have any questions regarding our school, please feel free to send me an email or give me a call. I will be glad to give you a tour or assist you in any way.
Mrs. Margie Reece
