About St. William of York School
Welcome to St. William of York Catholic School!
We are a preschool through eighth grade parish school in the Arlington Diocese, located in historic Stafford, Virginia, where America’s first Catholics settled and President George Washington spent his childhood.
We invite you to come and see why our bishop calls Catholic education “the greatest gift parents can give their children” and why our pastor calls his school the “jewel of the parish.” Our inspiring teachers and dedicated staff are ready to welcome your family and work with you in providing your children with a solid, integral Catholic formation, a time-tested foundation for a truly happy and fruitful life here and eternal happiness hereafter.
Our wonderful school parents are ready to help you feel at home as welcome members of a vibrant, joyful school family, a community life rooted in Gospel charity, an authentic Catholic culture that has created a warm unity between our school and parish families. Our close proximity to the Quantico Marine Corps Base facilitates that special bond we admire in our numerous military families.
St. William of York Catholic School is proud to be part of a timeless tradition of Catholic integral formation, an educational mission to form the whole child, intellectually, spiritually, morally, and physically.
Our dedicated and inspiring teachers understand what all parents want for their children: to learn and embrace their faith, to excel in academics to the best of their abilities, to be challenged to think clearly and communicate effectively, to develop wholesome friendships, to grow in virtue and a sense of service, to discern their unique vocations in life, and to be prepared for the challenges of adult life in the 21st Century.
As we share the same hopes and dreams of every parent, our academic programs and priorities are geared toward the maximum intellectual and moral growth of every child. Our students are on a joyful yet rigorous and age-appropriate pathway of learning, a path always and everywhere imbued with the truth of why God made us and guided by the reality of how He made us.
We are excited at St. William of York to be part of a growing wave of enthusiasm and renewed commitment to the Church’s educational tradition that is spreading across our great nation, a refreshing movement that seems to create enrollment waiting lists wherever it blossoms, and an encouraging trend and sure sign of optimism for our young people, our future leaders, who are indeed the “hope of the Church.”
