Admissions


 Welcome!

 

Dear Parents,

We would like to invite you to learn about your local Guardian Angel – St. Boniface School, located next to St. Gall church in Colton.  At GASB, we know the importance of a good education and the impact it can have on your children’s lives. We want to help you educate your child both intellectually and spiritually in an environment that is wholesome and nurturing.

Guardian Angel-St. Boniface School is a parochial school system, which offers educationally sound curricula in the elementary grades K through 8 to families of Uniontown, Colton and surrounding areas. We are currently staffed by certified lay faculty and the student-teacher ratio is approximately 5 students to one. This facilitates individualized attention to particular learning capacities and levels, as well as providing multiple learning experiences for all students.  Our teachers have the flexibility of a small class size to customize the curriculum for each individual student.   We set our standards high and work hard to help students develop to their full potential. 

We offer a two-year kindergarten program that we have found to be very successful.  If a child is four and is ready for the rigors of daily classroom life, we welcome them to participate in our school!  Sometimes children are ready for school at an earlier age than the customary age of 5 – we are fortunate to be able to offer this service.

Our school is accredited by Western Catholic Educational Association and approved by Washington State Superintendent of Public Instruction.  We are also certified by the Washington State Board of Education as a private school and are a member of the National Catholic Education Association (NCEA).

GASB students participate in the MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) state testing three times a year.  We continually see our students at the top of the academic list at the end of their senior year in high school. 

Guardian Angel - St. Boniface School’s students and faculty are closely connected to the local parishes: St. Gall in Colton, WA and St. Boniface in Uniontown, WA. The local communities support our school and are very active in its daily functions as well as its fundraisers. We believe that it is important for our students to be active in the community and in the service of others.

We are very fortunate to stay abreast of technology. GASB provides touchscreen laptops in each classroom, a traveling lab with 5 laptops, and 1:1 iPads along with with internet access to enhance the students’ studies. In addition, we have 10 new Chromebooks in our computer lab.  Document cameras are utilized in each classroom as well as PowerPoint projectors.

Over 100 years of Catholic School tradition is revived each morning when the school bell rings, and Guardian Angel-St. Boniface students begin their day with prayer. Though “youthfully” unaware of the precious heritage they share, many of the pupils who are currently enrolled represent third, fourth, and even fifth generation families that have attended the school. The school’s philosophy goes a step beyond basic educational objectives. It is dedicated to providing a Christian atmosphere in which students may learn and develop a realistic appreciation of their own worth and the dignity of others.

On April 30, from 5:30-6:30 pm, our 4th, 5th, and 8th grade classes will provide a spaghetti dinner to our community.  The dinner serves as a support event in which money is raised for the Outdoor camp experience and 8th grade spiritual retreat.  Following the dinner at 6:30, we invite interested families to meet for a short orientation meeting where we can answer any of the questions you might have. Even if you are enrolled in another program for next year, we would love to have you come and see what we have to offer.  We strive to provide the best education possible in our community.  I believe you will find that our families are delightful, hardworking people that want the very best for their children.   We look forward to welcoming your family to our family.

I have enclosed a tuition worksheet, as I know that is always a concern!  You will find our quality education is less money than a daycare bill!

Blessings,
Lori Becker, Principal
