Principal Message

As Principal of St. Edward the Confessor Parish School, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our Monarch community and to invite you to share in the experience of a Catholic education.  Founded in 1983, our parish school is a place rich in tradition, dedicated to faith and family through our nurturing and supportive community.  Since its inception, St. Edward the Confessor Parish School has partnered with parents to provide an exceptional “whole child” education.  With the help of faculty, staff, and parents, St. Edward the Confessor students grow as learners in God’s love.

St. Edward the Confessor Parish School is a Christ-centered school that embodies the qualities of a dynamic growth minded Catholic school.  Our school motto, “Always Learning,” accurately expresses the spirit and characteristics of the Parish School.  From our learners, to our teachers, to our administrative team and families, we are Always Learning, always seeking opportunities to grow, and always spreading the Good News of Christ. The elementary and middle school years are an exciting time when children embark upon new adventures.  We recognize and appreciate that these are critical years in the development of your children and we take very seriously our responsibility to teach, mentor, encourage and support them at this most influential time of their youth.

St. Edward the Confessor Parish School provides more than a strong academic education.  A St. Edward Parish School education is an investment in your child’s future. Through superior academic and extra-curricular programs, grounded in Gospel values, our mission is to form students to be ethical and responsible, academically strong, and spiritually formed., We are preparing them to be life-long learners, equipped with the skills and habits for success in school and life well beyond their Monarch years.  

St. Edward the Confessor Parish School is committed to help your child develop their God-given talents in a supportive and nurturing environment built around community. We believe that student success is attributed to the partnerships and relationships built within community, which is centered on our Catholic faith, moral decision making, strong communication, and parent involvement.  Our school offers a unique opportunity for families to build strong relationships in a faith-filled community where each child is challenged and nurtured to grow in faith and grace as they acquire the academic, social and emotional skills to fulfill God’s plan for them.

Thank you for your interest in our school.  I invite you to explore our website and see for yourself what makes St. Edward the Confessor Parish School such a wonderful place to learn and grow.  Please contact the Welcome Center and schedule a tour at 949-496-1241.  We look forward to welcoming you to our school community.
