Code of Conduct

Our student code of conduct is built on the notion that relationships are the heart of good behavior. We strive to develop those relationships, ensure our words and actions do not cause problems for others, and that students should be empowered to make choices and live with naturally occuring consequences. Please reivew our Parent/Student Handbook for our full student code of conduct.


Regular attendance is vital to the academic success of all our students. Habitual tardiness and absenteeism will be addressed by school leadership. For our full attendance policy, please review the relevant section in our Parent/Student Handbook.

Specialized Services

St. Matthew's Catholic School works with individual students with exceptionalities and/or disabilities and their families to develop a unique Student Support Plan (SSP) based upon the child's needs and what the school is able to offer.

A parentally placed private school student with a disability does not have an individual right to receive some or all of the special education and related services that the student would receive if enrolled in a public school under the Individual with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
