PhilosophySt. Matthew Catholic School is an active ministry of St. Matthew Parish, the Archdiocese of San Francisco, and the Catholic Church. We serve to impart and promote our Catholic faith to future generations. Parents, as primary educators, work in positive partnership with the parish and school, to create a faith community that inspires its members to live as Jesus did. We nurture each child's unique gifts and facilitate academic growth and faith formation of the whole person. By integrating faith, knowledge, and community, St. Matthew students will become a person with strong character, an effective communicator, and active Christian, a responsible citizen, and a life-long learner.
