Admissions

At Quincy Catholic Elementary Schools, we are proud to offer academically rigorous education within a nurturing family environment. Our four schools - Blessed Sacrament, St. Dominic, St. Francis, and St. Peter - each offer three year-old preschool through eight grade where the teachings of the Catholic faith are weaved into the fabric of the day. With small class sizes, students receive indvidualized attention and instruction.

It is our desire that every child in Quincy, Catholic or non-Catholic, sees one of our four Catholic elementary schools as an option to them. It is also our desire to work with every family to the greatest extent possible to make a Catholic education an affordable investment in their children’s future.
