Catholic Schools Week 2019!!!

Father John V. Doyle School's Open House last Sunday was a very successful one! We gave tours to many prospective families plus parishioners! It was wonderful to hear all the compliments as people walked through, such as, "You have a beautiful school; it's so clean and bright!" and "This will be a perfect fit for our child!"

During the Open House, we enrolled new students while others expressed interest and took registration packets home to fill out. Pre-K is filling up quickly for the 2019-2020 school year, and re-enrollments are being submitted for grades K-8, so I encourage you to please send your re-enrollment contract in soon to continue to offer your son or daughter a quality education at Father John V. Doyle School.

If you know someone who is interested in checking out our wonderful school, please tell them to give us a call for a personal tour at 401-821-3756!
