Valles’ Mission and Vision
As a Catholic school participating in the mission of Jesus and His Church, our mission is to provide education, encourage total formation of the whole person and foster quality human relationships. Our students will develop an understanding of global stewardship and will be empowered to adapt to the challenges of the 21st century.
Teaching is our ministry. Jesus is our model. Children are our passion. Transformed lives are our product. And heaven is our goal. This is the essence of a Valle Catholic education.

Valle Catholic Schools is a learning community for students from preschool through secondary school. Located in Ste. Genevieve, Missouri, it is owned and operated by Ste. Genevieve Parish in the Archdiocese of St. Louis. The school is dedicated to continuing the mission of Jesus Christ by educating young people in the ways of Christian living and preparing them spiritually, academically, emotionally and physically for Christian living in the 21st century. Our students receive an education that is excellent in every facet. The school promotes the spirituality of its students while providing a top-notch academic program.
Valle Catholic students treat each other and the adults in the community with the respect that is due all, because all are created in the image of God. The students are accepting of others’ differences and are accepted by the community. They are encouraged to explore God’s creation, to follow their natural curiosity and to develop their creativity in a safe and nurturing environment.
Valle Catholic teachers are dedicated to educating their students in all aspects of Christian living. They accept their responsibility as the spiritual leaders of their classrooms and strive to build their students’ relationships with Jesus through prayer, teaching and modeling. They embrace leadership roles within the school community and teach the students to do the same. They are dedicated to a lifetime of learning and instill the same love of learning in their students. Valle teachers use the combination of a rigorous, well-aligned curriculum and technology to creatively empower students with the necessary technological and critical thinking skills to succeed in their world.
Together the students, teachers, parents, staff and administration form a Valle family that is founded on Jesus Christ and the teachings of the Church. It is a community steeped in tradition and devoted to faith, family, service, life and all of God’s creation.
