St. Columba Catholic School was established in 1963 by the Sisters of Mercy forming the elementary school grades Kindergarten through Fourth. Each year a new grade was added with the first class graduating in1968. The charisma of the school has always been its family-friendly community and dedication to our students. As is evident, this school has been a labor of love since its beginning and still remains apparent. Over the past fifty years, parishioner and parent support is a constant, and the administration, faculty, and staff are grateful for the continued generosity of spirit shown by the parish and our extended community. It is our mission to live the Gospel message of Our Lord, Jesus Christ, and in doing so prepare our students to live a Christ centered life in an ever changing world.

Rev. Gabutera Rolando, Pastor
