Principal's Message

Infant of Prague Catholic School guides children from Pre-kindergarten through 12th grade to greatness in faith, education, and community.  Beginning in Pre-kindergarten, IOPCS prepares each student for success with a rigorous academic program and provides each student with the tools needed to succeed in school and beyond. 

 

Our school day starts with a prayer to keep us mindful of God’s presence in our lives.  Our content-based model and class sizes allow our teachers to individually know and value each student for his or her unique talents and gifts, which creates a more customized learning approach.  Our goal is to foster the academic, spiritual, emotional, and physical development of each student. Infant of Prague Catholic School is fully accredited by Cognia and offers a comprehensive education with a focus on math and sciences.  We offer athletic opportunities for students in Grades 4-12; additionally, IOPCS offers National Junior Honor Society, Catholic Math League, and Math Counts.  Our students also participate in Science Olympiad, National History Bee, and essay contests. These programs bring students together in friendly competition and fellowship.

 

Our IOPCS Before School and affordable After Care Programs give our students an opportunity to visit with classmates, participate in special projects and complete their homework in a safely supervised environment. 

Your child deserves the opportunity to have a faith-filled education with teachers who know them and classmates who care!

 

In Christ,

 

 

Maria Johnson, Principal

Mission

Infant of Prague Church Mission

Diocesan Schools Mission Statement
The mission of the schools in the Diocese of Raleigh is to engage our school community in creating a quality education within a Catholic environment that fosters the current and future development of the whole student.

Infant of Prague Catholic School Mission
Infant of Prague Catholic School embraces the mission of Jesus Christ. We are committed to preparing our students to live as stewards of God’s creation by providing a Christ-centered Catholic education, integrating sound Christian principles of faith, service, and leadership with strong academic programs focused on the development of the whole child.

Children are the center of our concern and the reason for our being here.

Quality Catholic education calls us to integrate Gospel teachings and values with real life.

All secular subjects need to be taught in the light of these values.

Parents are the primary educators of their children; therefore we work closely with them in both the school and parish context.

Students of all faiths, ethnic origins, and economic levels contribute to our world community; thus, we welcome all students and strive to create an environment that reflects the dignity of each person.

Faith shared with parents, teachers, and students is nourished by prayer and worship within the total life of our school and parish community.

Students reach their individual potential by thinking clearly, forming strong convictions, and acting in ways corresponding with their beliefs for the betterment of their own lives, their Church, and society as a whole.
