Located in the heart of Clear Lake, St. Clare of Assisi Catholic School was first opened in the fall of 1995. We currently offer classes for full day Preschool 3 & 4 (must be potty trained) through the eighth grade. We accept no more than 12 students in PK3, no more than 15 students in PK4, and no more than 18 students in Kindergarten. School hours for all grades are from 8:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Our students are required to wear school uniforms.
Students in PK and Kindergarten receive instruction in all the core subjects in addition to Religion, Music, PE/Health and Library. PK and Kindergarten are both taught in a traditional manner, as well as Montessori integrated into the traditional approach. Students in first through eighth grade receive instruction in all the core subjects in addition to Religion, Spanish, Computer, Music, PE/Health, Theatre, Art and Library. Computers are available in each classroom and in the Computer Lab. Before and after school care is available. St. Clare is the first and only Catholic middle school in Clear Lake.
Students need to bring a lunch every day to school. However, school offers pizza day every Friday for an additional fee. They generally eat lunch in the Family Life Center (gym) or (weather permitting) in the outdoor lunch area. Families are invited to join students at lunch time as well as for Star breakfasts (held on a scheduled basis).
All of our teachers are experienced, degreed and qualified. We are fully accredited through the Texas Catholic Conference Education Department (TCCEA), which is recognized by the Texas Educational Agency (TEA). We are under the supervision of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston Catholic School Office. Our Interim Superintendent is Debra Haney, our Principal is Dr. Al Varisco, and our Pastor is Father Vincent Nguyen.
Here at St. Clare School we pride ourselves on the many supplementary activities we provide for the students and their families. These activities not only promote unity within the school, but encourage the cohesiveness of the St. Clare Community as a whole. In order to continue with these activities, fundraising is a necessity. The Star Annual Fund is the foundation of our fundraising efforts at St. Clare of Assisi Catholic School, allowing us to fulfill our mission to challenge students Spiritually, academically, socially and emotionally. Like many Catholic Schools, St. Clare relies on annual tax-deductible gifts, in addition to tuition, the balance the budget each year and continue to provide enhanced educational opportunities and facilities for students. The Star Annual Fund proceeds provide St. Clare with the financial flexibility to make investments throughout the year that would not be possible through tuition revenue only.
Applications are available upon request. There is no charge to apply. You will receive notification from the school office when an opening is available and instructions on how to complete the registration process. We thank you for your interest in St. Clare of Assisi Catholic School and look forward to working with you to provide an excellent Catholic education for your child.
