Site Visiting Team’s Summary Thoughts (2016)
The Visiting Committee observed that St. Vincent de Paul School (SVDP) is a faith filled, welcoming, service oriented, and academically rigorous community. The ability to offer innovative multi-age classroom experiences prepares students for high school and life experiences. The collaborative and supportive relationship between pastor and principal permeates all other working relationships with the SVDP community. We admire the community’s approach to financial stewardship and the many initiatives underway to ensure a vibrant future. We are confident the SVDP will achieve the goals that they have identified and that we have affirmed. We feel blessed to have had the opportunity to experience the warmth and welcome of the whole community.
