There is nothing more important than your child’s education. Of course you want the best for them in all areas of life, but their education takes top priority. At Quincy Catholic Elementary Schools, we have a long history of exceeding expectations. We provide the highest quality, Catholic school education for students from Pre-Kindergarten through eighth grade. 

What makes QCES different? We have been providing our students and the community with quality education for more than 150 years. We have a reputation of trust, respectability, and unsurpassed excellence in the world of education. What’s the advantage to choosing QCES as the educational home for your lower and upper elementary school student? Here are just a few of the ways our four elementary schools, Blessed Sacrament, St. Dominic, St. Francis, and St. Peter excel. We’re proud to represent the pillar of education in our four Catholic schools serving Quincy and the surrounding areas.


Academic Excellence

The Quincy QCES advantage begins on your child’s first day, with our commitment to academic achievement. At our elementary schools, your child will benefit from the level of instruction that only a Catholic education can provide. We’ve developed a thorough curriculum that guarantees your child’s academic success, not only because of the quality of the material but also due to the experience of our team of educators. 

Students at Quincy Catholic Elementary Schools excel in all areas of academics, including the basics of math, reading, religion, science, social studies, and language arts. Our academic program also includes physical education, artistic development, technology, community service, and D.A.R.E. and R.I.S.K programs to support your child’s physical and emotional health and wellbeing. 

Gold Standard Extracurriculars

Extracurricular activities are important for a student’s development long before they reach high school. They can help shape your child’s academic future by offering a broader range of learning opportunities. Students who participate in extracurriculars throughout their lower and upper elementary years benefit from improved self-esteem, better academic performance, and social opportunities they would otherwise miss. 

At QCES, we’ve developed an extracurricular program that includes CYO and IESA athletics, band, scouts, art, vocal music, and various service projects. We encourage all our students to find their passion outside the traditional classroom and to grow as individuals. 


Competitive Academic Advantage

Students who attend Catholic schools benefit from a more personalized learning environment. In our classrooms, each child is viewed as an individual and supported through their learning journey. We firmly believe that this paves the path for success later in your child’s academic career. By the time your child reaches high school, they’ll have an advantage over their peers – something that provides them with more possibilities and potential for their collegiate careers.
