Welcome to St. Charles Catholic School! I am blessed to be the principal of such a wonderful school where students learn the tradition and beliefs of the Catholic faith, participate in celebration of our faith and provide service to those less fortunate. I am proud of our strong academic program, excellent sports program and the wonderful musical talents discovered through our on-campus piano and band instrument lessons. Always thinking forward, we are now working toward becoming a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) School. Also emphasizing in Religion and Art. We are excited to be adding this model to our school and look forward to seeing our students enjoy their new hands-on projects.
I am enjoying a “homecoming” of sorts having been at St. Charles from 2003-2013. I am returning to St. Charles after a three year absence. During that time, I worked as an Education Consultant for textbook publishing company. Though I very much enjoyed that experience, the pull to return to St. Charles grew stronger each year.
I am truly blessed to be back in this loving, nurturing community filled with excellent teachers and staff, supportive parents and of course, amazing students! I invite you to come and meet all of us. I am sure you will share my opinion and those of generations of families who have attended this school.
I am truly grateful for this opportunity and so excited to start the new school year!
Yours in Christ,
Sylvia Durazo Benning
