St. Richard School is excited to welcome students into the three-year-old prekindergarten (preschool) program and up-to eighth grade. 


We offer a full-day three-year-old prekindergarten, four-year-old prekindergarten, and kindergarten for our littlest students. Our developmental program encourages the growth of the whole child. The program provides an educational foundation which includes all aspects of child development: social, emotional, cognitive, physical, spiritual, and STEM basics. Our parents are beyond pleased that they enroll their child at an early age. They see the positive change in their child after a few weeks in the classroom.
