Quincy Catholic Elementary Schools

Shaping Their Future to be the Best They Can Be

Mission Statement

Quincy Catholic Elementary Schools strive to provide students an excellent education in a caring and nurturing faith-based environment that promotes students’ intellectual, physical, social and spiritual growth and development.

Quincy Catholic Elementary Schools (QCES) have offered quality education for more than 150 years. Our four schools continue this tradition, offering a full range of educational opportunities from Pre-K through 8th grade. We welcome students of all faiths. Religious values are integrated through the entire curriculum daily.

Academic and behavioral expectations for students are high. Our teachers are experienced, state-certified and dedicated to Christian values. QCES students consistently score well in nationwide achievement tests. QND High School students continue the success with 99% of the graduates attending college. Technology is integrated with classroom learning through iPads, laptops, ELMOS and SMART Boards. Learning activities develop independence, critical thinking, creativity and the sharing of ideas.

Before and After School Care programs are offered to assist working parents. Public school busing is available to and from school. Other services include Speech Therapy, Title I Reading and Math services and Hot Lunch Program. Students participate in many extracurricular activities including community service, Parochial Music Organization (PMO) Band and Choir, Scout programs, CYO and IESA sports programs, organized social events and field trips.

Scholarship and tuition assistance programs make Catholic education affordable. Visit our schools and experience our caring and close community.
