Why SI?

Balanced curriculum that is rooted in faith, culture, and life

At St. Isidore School, we believe in the benefit of an outstanding education rooted in faith and enriched with values of love, hope, service and compassion. Every day, students are presented opportunities and reminded to use their values – inside and outside of the classroom.  In collaboration with parents and families, we teach our students respect for others and decision-making skills, empowering them to cope in this ever-changing world.

PreSchool through 8th grade in one location

Starting at age 3, students receive a comprehensive education between two buildings with only one public entrance. This offers a sense of security, continuity and stability. Parents may also choose to have their children in one location and on the same schedule during early childhood, elementary, and middle school years.

Small class size = individual attention and care

We have an average of 20 students per class, so St. Isidore students receive the individual attention they may need, which prepares them to be lifelong learners and productive members in society.

Grounded in family

Our school size is small which means we have a family-like community that includes students, faculty, parents, families, and friends. St. Isidore students frequently interact across grade levels, building self-confidence, school spirit, and the sense of community.

Dedicated faculty focused on teaching (not just testing)

Being a Catholic School in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, we have a distinct advantage of being able to education the whole child (mind, body and spirit).

At St. Isidore School, we have standardized testing, but it is not the focus of our curriculum. In fact, many of our graduates qualify for honors classes as they transition to both Catholic and public high school.  We are proud to say many alumni finish high school at the top of their class.

Additionally, we:

  • Are accredited by Middle States Association of Colleges & Schools
  • Have higher than average standardized test scores
  • Have a 100% graduation rate
