Welcome from the Principal
On behalf of our entire staff, we would like to welcome you to Ave Maria Catholic School! My name is Beatrice Skoog and it is a great honor to be the Principal of Ave Maria. I have been a part of the Ave Maria Community for 12 years and have felt very blessed to serve alongside the compassionate, enthusiastic, loving, faith-filled teachers and staff at AMCS.
Our mission at Ave Maria Catholic School is the education of the whole child (spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, physically, and socially). You will find our learning environment is safe, Christ centered, and supportive while providing a challenging curriculum for all students. We are Nationally Accredited by Cognia and have been voted "Best of the Best" School in Parker. Ave Maria Catholic School is a Catholic School under the Colorado Springs diocese and serves students in Preschool through 8th grade. We are the school of choice for parents and families in Parker and the surrounding neighboring communities for families who desire a Christ centered learning environment with strong community involvement, challenging academics, and solid Catholic teachings.
As members of the Ave Maria Catholic School community, we strive to model Gospel values in all we do and to "inspire the students to make a profound difference in their community now and in the future". Values of responsibility, compassion, honesty, respect, generosity, reverence, tolerance, forgiveness, and self control are encouraged, taught, modeled, and reinforced. Our Catholic faith is embedded in all we do throughout the day. Here at Ave, we begin each day with school prayer led by students. We say the Pledge of Allegiance, recite our school Mission Statement, and "Work Hard, Play Hard, Pray Hard, and Take Care of One Another".
At Ave Maria Catholic School, we are a community in faith with loving and supportive families, staff members, and students. I invite you to become part of our Ave Maria Catholic School family and to learn more about what makes Ave Maria "the Best of the Best". For more information about our school, tuition, curriculum, or to see what the parents and staff are saying about Ave Maria, please continue to explore our website or give us a call at 720-842-5400. There is something special about Ave Maria Catholic School and I invite you to learn more and join us in our community of faith!
