Principal’s Welcome

Welcome and thank you for visiting the website of the finest regional parochial school serving southern Rhode Island. From our early childhood program through eighth grade, our mission is dedicated to providing a strong educational program that teaches Christian values, support the education of the whole child, provide a safe environment and promotes the preparing of students for a life of continuous learning and service to the community.

At Monsignor Clarke School, we establish a Christ centered environment where Christian values are taught, modeled, learned and lived by all members of the community. These values begin with a gifted, caring, and a welcoming staff that shares a host of talents with its students and, in turn, encourages students to share their time, abilities and leadership with one another and the community.

It is our goal to offer an excellent education where diversity of learning styles is honored and where individual differences are respected. We help students take risks in a safe and nurturing environment to promote a positive growth mindset. Educating the complete child is paramount to each students’’ success.

As you navigate our website, you’ll learn more about all our exciting programs where the creativity, uniqueness and self-esteem of each child is fostered and nurtured. Our students are taught the skills of critical thinking, collaboration, teamwork and self-discipline as they take ownership of their learning.

Because learning also takes place beyond the classroom, we offer a number of clubs and activities to help students grow and explore their interests and talents. Most importantly, service to our community is an integral component of our program. We are preparing our students to be responsible citizens and stewards in a diverse and global community.

Thank you for your interest in Monsignor Clarke School. We hope that what you see here will encourage you to visit our campus, observe the sense of community and consider the excellent educational program we offer.

Please feel free to email or call our main office to schedule a visit at your convenience. We would love to share this special place with you.
