We instill a strong foundation in the Catholic faith through our Religion curriculum and opportunities to come together as a school community in prayer. St. Sebastian School has created a setting in which each student has the opportunity to succeed to the best of their ability and discover their God-given talents. Teachers and parents strive to become partners in education as every effort is made to meet the varying abilities of the students through differentiated instruction.
