A MODEL COMMUNITY OF LEARNERS, STEADFAST IN MIND AND SPIRIT.

WELCOME TO ST. COLUMBA SCHOOL

St. Columba School, where students are known, respected, and cared for by faculty, staff, and peers; where exploring ideas and loving learning are cool; where happiness and challenge walk hand-in-hand; where leadership and extracurricular opportunities abound; and where the presence of the Catholic tradition stamps a profound and lasting influence on the educational experience of our young scholars.

At St. Columba, a Catholic, independent school for children in grades pre k - 8, each student is a valued and integral part of a joyful and inspiring campus. an enclave where he can find pitch-perfect harmony in serving others while walking, with utter confidence, alongside the beam of light God intends for him to discover, explore, and, ultimately, pursue. An ever-inclusive community in the spirit of Saint Francis, we welcome and respect students of all faiths, races, nationalities, and circumstances.

GUIDING PRINCIPLES

St. Columba  School is dedicated to reaching that of God in every person. Our mission is to seek truth, challenge the intellect, honor differences, embrace our community and nature, and nurture each student’s mind, body and spirit. Because we believe that every individual has “that of God within,” the search for and celebration of each student’s inner light extends well beyond the walls of the Church. For us, the arts, community involvement, the life of the mind, the care of the body and the inclusion of distinct voices and perspectives are integral to our mission. 

ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE

Inside our classrooms, the thirst for knowledge is undeniable and an atmosphere of curiosity and lifelong learning is fostered. 

Not only do the children grow as a class, but they also thrive individually. We teach our students to explore their own talents and interests and to be advocates for themselves. We hold them accountable and laud perseverance. Often, the growth in struggle is the greatest measure of success. The result is boys and girls with confidence.

STUDENT 
LIFE

In partnership with parents, and guided by the Catholic Faith, we seek to educate students to the highest standards  of  Catholic tradition, so that they may grow in knowledge, wisdom, and  the love of God. 

We share  two thousand years of Catholic thought, history, culture, and art, so that our students might understand themselves and their world in the light of love, and use their gifts in the service of others, and for the glory of God.

OUR ARTS PROGRAM

In the wake of so many schools dropping their Art and Music Programs we have done just the opposite. We have re-doubled our efforts, invested in state of the art equipment, hired excellent teachers and added new and exciting programs to help our students shine, thrive and find their creative passion.  

We are so proud to say that in addition to providing a beautiful academic education, we offer the best program in the arts available in Durango.
