St. Wendel School has existed for more than 150 years, and the mission of the school has always been twofold: to provide a rigorous academic program for our students and to transmit the doctrine of the Catholic Faith to the new generation of the faithful. These two missions have been connected to our present vision statement which simply is: We Learn, We Serve, and We Are Christlike.
One of the highest tributes which a school can receive is for an outside organization to objectively examine a school and find praise. This happened in the spring of 2012 when an accreditation team from Advance Ed visited St. Wendel School, examined its accreditation documents, and interviewed 50 school stakeholders (students, staff, parents, community members). The findings of the committee were positive, and St. Wendel School was described as a “treasure in southern Indiana”. Also, the Indiana Department of Education has ranked our school in its “A” category which shows that we work hard to insure continuous student achievement.
Please take time to peruse this website to gather information about our school. Be certain to check out our ISTEP+ scores which rank at the top of Diocesan and State of Indiana scores. Also, check out our list of “service projects” which connect to our vision of service. These ISTEP+ scores and service project information are located under the "School Info" link. Finally, be certain to read the bios and class information from our dedicated and caring staff.
