We, the school family of St. Ephrem Catholic Academy, strive to be a welcoming and responsive Roman Catholic community by passing on our faith and traditions as we teach the students from Pre-K 3 to 8th grade by word and example. In order to prepare our students to achieve success in their future educational endeavors, most notably academically challenging high schools, our faculty endeavors to empower our students to achieve excellence through instructional rigor.
