Welcome from the Principal

Welcome to St. Catherine of Siena School! This website is our way of sharing our excellent school with the world and we appreciate your interest in us.

Located in Norwood, Massachusetts, St. Catherine of Siena School provides an outstanding Catholic education for students from pre-school through eighth grade. We begin every day with school wide Morning Prayer in our gym and end by reciting our school motto: See Christ in Others. Be Christ for Others. Instruction is aligned with rigorous academic standards and students are supported in their learning by 21st century technology. Students also participate in weekly music, art, physical education, and computer classes. Spanish is taught from Pre-School through Grade 8 and Mandarin Chinese is taught from Pre-School through Grade 6.
