"Teaching To The Full Child"
A Rich Education

Watch this video to gain significant insight into Saint Charles Borromeo Academy, a Catholic Classical Education Community. We teach to the “full child,” developing a sense of wonder and a love of God’s world. Borromeo scholars foster a genuine passion for learning and serving.


Our process allows students and teachers to explore outside the classroom—truly enriching their whole education. At Borromeo Academy, faith is valued, and God is a part of each classroom daily. We are a loving part of Saint Charles Borromeo Catholic Church. Contact us now to learn more.  #borromeoacademy

Watch "Stone Soup"
By Borromeo 1st Grade

Watch the November 20 “Stone Soup” presentation by the Saint Charles Borromeo Academy 1st Grade Scholars. Stone Soup is a folk story that teaches the values of sharing and caring for each other. Mrs. Jones's First Grade class has presented this production for over 30 years.


Stone Soup reminds us of the importance of giving and of the blessings that we have. The story helps us realize that most have everything needed to make life work and encourages us to focus on abundance to overcome the perception of scarcity.

Why Catholic Liberal Education?

Borromeo Academy is a Premier Member School of the Institute for Catholic Liberal Education (ICLE). Catholic liberal education (from the Latin, liber, which means free) is ordered to the Truth that sets us free.


The Institute for Catholic Liberal Education inspires and equips Catholic educators to renew today’s Catholic schools by drawing on the Church’s tradition of education, which frees teachers and students for the joyful pursuit of faith, wisdom, and virtue. Learn more by watching the video at the right.
